The Q & A
Tell us about yourself"I’m a scientist who fell into the rabbit hole of information security! I attended the University of Cincinnati (go Bearcats!) where I studied neuroscience and psychology. I worked in regulatory science and pharmaceuticals for a few years before falling in love with and transitioning to information security. I am a Cybrary alum, and was part of the first SOC Analyst cohort! Now I am an assistant mentor and SIEM instructor for Cybrary and work as a security analyst for a large consulting firm, so I get to dabble in all the fun areas of security. I continue to feed my passion for science by serving as a scientist on a board that reviews recombinant DNA submissions for government-funded studies. I am also pursuing graduate studies in advanced computer security. When I’m not working, you can find me powerlifting, looking for donuts, racing and working on cars, petting dogs, or seeking out new coffee shops."
What brought you to teaching on Cybrary:"I was a member of the first Cybrary SOC Analyst cohort, and it helped me to gain the confidence and establish the baseline knowledge for building my career and getting my foot in the door in the world of information security. I wanted to give back and help others build a career in the same area and get the same experience that I got from Cybrary!"
