Here are brief overviews of our backgrounds!
From the age of 6, I liked electronics and I started building my own electronic circuits. Mainly sound and mechanical robots with no logic but with physical actuators.
In 1979 someone told me computers were the way of the future, a machine that could do anything. I was confused and had no clue what that meant.
In 1984, while studying Electrical Engineering in College, I took a computer programming class thinking: I may have to learn these things someday, who knows… I was hooked! I could not stop writing code and as a Junior in College, switched from Electrical Engineering to Computer Science.
Later, I wrote software for the Medical Industry and for the oil field. From Electronic Signal processing, to Medical Records, to Accounting and for data collection and Electronic Data Interchange for Linux and Windows Platforms as well as what it is called “Inter Process Communication” (machines talking to machines).
That lead me into the world of IT because of the lack of standard support for networks and distributed systems that existed at the time.
With so much work, I either developed a team or joined a team. I simply decided to acquire shares from one of my suppliers and source of IT support where I have been happy ever since with multiple projects and deployments since 1997.
With a background in electronics and over 40 years of experience having to make printers, servers, and users communicate. Because of this, I had to study and develop methods to quickly deploy and correct issues due to the disparity of scenarios.
I invested in a small local computer company to assure I had a direct control of my future in technology.
In 2005, I quit my 29 year job and joined my company full time. What was then a computer sales company, became a very successful IT management company.
We had developed a successful cloud computing platform and had customers in several time zones and countries.
As things developed these customers demanded more specialized hardware, from there, I made my mark knowing how to deploy specialized setups based solely on the customer’s needs.
With quite a few vendors and manufacturers I now select the best deployment scenarios for our customers and look forward to doing this for many more years.
I wake up every morning with the anticipation of helping our clients achieve their goals.
I have been fascinated with computers since I was 6 years old, at which time I enjoyed rebuilding and configuring computers. Later in life watching movies with technology of the future, I wanted to be a part of that world. Being inspired by the world around me and how great it is to help others, I decided to mix my dream of being part of the future in computer world with my passion to help others, thus bringing me into this field.
My Grandfather always had a computer when I was growing up so computers have always been in my life.
When I got my own I was on it all the time. One thing led to another and now I do it for a living.
I have had a passion for technology since I was a kid. At 14, I helped my friend build his first computer and was hooked from that point on. I didn’t know at the time that IT consisted of more than just putting computers together, but I can say with confidence that I could not have picked a better career path.
Ever since I could remember I’ve always had an interest in putting things together and taking things apart. This was led by my curiosity to find out how things work. When I was five years old, I was given my first toolbox as a birthday present by my grandparents, after which I proceeded to disassemble the family VCR. My tools where promptly replaced with Legos and model kits.
My family always had a computer since I was little and I took any chance I could get to use it, of course I was monitored to make sure I wouldn’t try to take anything apart. When I was in High School a close friend’s brother was working at NASA in Houston. One time he came down for a visit and built his brother a computer. He showed us how to assemble the machine, what each part did and why they were important.
I’ve been Hooked on computers ever since.
I first encountered accounting through a joke on a Disney Channel show when I was a kid. The joke was making fun of accounting as a career, but ironically it really sparked my interest. I also found myself fascinated by business topics, especially economics in middle school and high school. I decided to pursue a career in accounting by my Junior year in high school because it fitted well with both my interests and talents. Since then I have been studying at ULL to pursue my Bachelor’s degree.
Hello! I’m Ashlie, an IT enthusiast starting a fresh journey in the tech domain. I find joy in navigating the digital landscape, solving challenges, and exploring innovative solutions. Whether troubleshooting systems or embracing new technologies, I bring a versatile and adaptive approach to IT. With a keen interest in the evolving world of information technology, I am eager to contribute and thrive in dynamic professional environments.
I value understanding complex, continually developing systems. The efficient operation of high-power systems captivated me, leading me to pursue a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. During my studies, I discovered the immense connection between computer electronics and mechanical engineering design. Curiosity drove me to explore how these fields can adapt together for societal progress. This interest led me to branch deeply into computer programming and website development. Post-graduation, I aim to develop innovative systematic solutions to future challenges.
Growing up, I have always been interested in everything electronics. Computer programming and computer hardware has always been in my vision in what I wanted to pursue in my future. In high school, I was part of the robotics team and helped design a completely functional robot. From then on, I knew I wanted to set my interest into computer programming. I attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and received my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, thus leading me to understand in depth the various technologies, programming languages, and computer systems that drive our society today. As a result, I am working to further develop software for various industries to supplement various solutions with great knowledge as well as enthusiasm.
I started helping as the HR person since 2014, after Covid, PCM needed help in AR after losing all their office personnel, so I came in full time.
Today, I handle all those tasks plus payroll while working as a full time Real Estate Agent and grandmother.
I can only do this because of the kind of automation that PCM has put into place for me to do my work.
