Systems Administrator - Intersection
I'm a special education teacher turned IT professional dabbling in AWS, cloud administration, technical writing, and freelance writing.
I founded AWS Newbies in 2018 after finding little resources available for non-engineers to learn about Cloud Computing and Amazon Web Services. Since then, I've created a free resource website for people studying for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam, and released an eBook and free newsletter course for complete beginners. I am also a course instructor at LinkedIn Learning/Lynda, teaching introductory AWS courses for non-engineers.
I have a Master's of Education in Special Education, am passionate about helping students and young adults navigate their education and careers with their specific needs in mind. My specialty is in helping people with Executive Function Disorder/ADHD navigate their education/career/task organization.
I am a self-taught frontend developer and freelance writer. Oh, and by day, I'm a Systems Administrator at an Alphabet-backed start-up in NYC!
