OBJECTIVE A seasoned programmer with recently updated programming skills seeks a career developing web-based data-driven applications, where she can also write clear procedures and manuals for technical and non-technical audiences alike; possibly one where she can apply her background in paralegal and accounting, and her talent as an artist.
 
SUMMARY  Analyzed requirements and problems, presented solutions and implementation plans.
Designed, coded, installed, documented and tested software programs (client/server, web-based, diagnostic, application, database, and real-time).  Developed schedules for these efforts and completed them on time.
Coordinated efforts of a team of software engineers.
Performed system administration (UNIX, Linux, WinNT4 Server) and database administration (Oracle7, SQL Server).
Trained technical and support staff in the use of many software tools and desktop programs, and designed custom applications for those tools and programs.
Controlled changes made to software and hardware (configuration management), and recommended groupings of related changes.
Wrote users' manuals, specifications, procedures, reports, and technical meeting notes.
Wrote and conducted system acceptance tests, collected test data, and correlated them with system requirements.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONExcerpt from Letter of Recommendation from Steven M. Davis:
"I hired her to maintain a department-wide Management Information System for a government client; a project, which at that time, was in trouble.  Christie quickly came up to speed by learning a number of new technologies and by quickly gaining the trust of our client.  When the project encountered setbacks, I promoted her into the role of system developer.  She mastered the skills necessary for the job, kept me well informed of her progress, regained customer's confidence in us, and got the project back on schedule."
