CAYUGA MEDICAL CENTER IT INTERN
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to intern for the IT staff of a regional hospital in Ithaca, NY. The hospital has been installing electronic records management as well as interfacing this system to community doctors for a few years now. The staff is also investigating using microcontrollers such as the Arduino microcontrollers for running equipment primarily to save money. Both the staff and I were surprised that I came to them with much knowledge of using this microcontroller as I played with it extensively in high school.
COMPUTER SCIENCE SHADOW, CBOARD
CBORD, Fall, 2014 to March, 2015
In high school, I was given the opportunity to try out a career, in my case computer science, at a local business. I selected CBORD. This is a very interesting company. It provides equipment to colleges and hospitals to run things like food services. CBORD has a core platform that IT people then customize for specific businesses like Cayuga Medical Center or Ithaca College. The IT people also provide customer service after the customized service is installed in a location. As an intern, I was able to see all of the steps. The person who mentored me also helped me on some of my own programming especially learning how to optimize the programming with assembly code. Although the internship was only supposed to last for 6 weeks, we got on so well that it kept going until I had to quit for tennis team.
ECENTER – ITHACA RECYCLING
Sept. 2013 – Aug. 2016
Ithaca believes strongly in recycling. We also are a college town. Students make excellent customers here. I worked here on and off throughout high school and in fact, occasionally they still send me an email to come in for some emergency. Basically, I moved things and took apart computers.
COMMUNITY LOAVES AND FISHES
July, 2011 – June, 2015
This is a church sponsored soup kitchen. My job was usually to organize the store room by moving things around and writing labels.
