Lead IT Technician/Front Desk Assistant

Northern Arizona University
My main function was to provide first-tier support to faculty, staff, and students for a school. The school had about 25 faculty and staff and 800+ students. I managed all technology 2 computer labs, and 12 classrooms. I was responsible for interfacing with vendors and companies to install, configure, and support software and hardware systems. When I was not supporting IT needs, I worked at the front desk answering questions and performing office functions for faculty and students.

Student Computing Assistant

Northern Arizona University
I was part of a team that provided all support for students technology needs. We ran a 24/7 phone support line, and went to the student for support when phone support is not possible. If neither option resolved the issues, we provided in-depth, professional support in our office. These services ranged from OS re-installation, to data recovery, to virus and malware removal.
