EDUCATION

Bachelor of Science. Brigham Young University. Major: Accounting. Minors: Business Management, Managerial Economics, and Computer Science. During my studies at BYU, my curriculum was very broad based in the business field giving me the opportunity to develop flexibility and adaptability. Computer Science courses included Assembly Language, Basic, COBOL, and Pascal. I worked with several small computers networked together giving me experience in communications and networking of dissimilar systems. My communications skills were further enhanced through my work as a Computer Lab Assistant where my duties included helping other students with their programming problems and establishing and documenting standards for work to be done in the computer lab. I graduated from a 64 credit hour program in 11 months while maintaining a 3.2 Grade Point Average (A=4.0), which shows I am not afraid of hard work. Other activities included membership in the national Accounting Fraternity of Beta Alpha Psi as well as social work doing income taxes for the elderly.

Associates of Arts and Sciences. Ricks College. Major: Accounting and Computer Science. I completed this 64 credit hour program in 10 months with a Grade Point Average of 3.4 (A=4.0). My dedication to my education helped me to complete this program in this short amount of time. During my studies, I programmed in COBOL on the college's IBM System 3 giving me valuable experience on a legacy computer system.
