I recently changed my degree from Computer, Information, and Network Security to IT Project Management.  I decided that the week after class started was a great time to make this change, and started out somewhat behind everyone else.  I am taking this class because I want to learn more about project management, especially in virtual teams.  Our corporate office is in Manhattan, and our midwest office is located in Urbana, so virtual meetings happen quite often.  Knowing how to manage these meetings and keep them on track will be highly beneficial to me.  I work for the ASPCA as a Jr Business Analyst, and basically design in house applications used within the organization.  I absolutely love my job, however, I spent the last 26 years in Chicago, and coming to the country... well, it's been a culture shock for sure.  (You might be thinking that Urbana isn't that "country", but having to drive through a half hour of corn fields to get to work qualifies as "country" in my book).

 

The best way to get a hold of me is by email, akloster@mail.depaul.edu.  All of it comes to my phone, and I generally check it several times a day.  I also have skype on my phone, but I do not know my account information.

 

The above picture is of Pluto and me at the end of the Walt Disney World Marathon.  I ran it with the Leukemia and Lymphoma society, and raised about $4,000 for their organization.  It was my first marathon, and honestly, I can't wait to run another one.  So, I like to run in my spare time.  I also like to read, and recently acquired a Kindle (they are awesome!).  I don't get to use it often enough though, as most of my reading involves school books.  I work for the ASPCA as a Jr Business Analyst, and basically design in house applications used within the organization.  I absolutely love my job, however, I spent the last 26 years in Chicago, and coming to the country... well, it's been a culture shock for sure.

 

I have a sheltie named Fred.  He is awesome.  He is probably the sweetest dog you will ever meet.  I also recently acquired my parent's labradoodle, Buddy.  He's also pretty cool, but he is an attention hog.  If you don't pay enough attention to him he starts to grumble at you and woof under his breath.  He's definitely got some personality.  One cool thing that I'm really enjoying about Buddy is that when you throw the ball, not only does he chase it, he'll also bring it back to you.  Fred still hasn't figured that one out.
