"I have been focused on bringing advanced technical initiatives to West Virginia my entire career. As a startup junky, I am regularly considering new approaches and processes within products and services. I regularly attend events or see services in other areas, and think about the ways that we can leverage their experiences and apply them here. I am looking forward to leveraging my skills and experience within the technical startup space, to help stimulate and advance the expanding West Virginia economy by mentoring, advising, and guiding students, faculty, and community members."
