On June 6, 1977, I started as a Sr. Programmer/Analyst for Atlantic Mutual Insurance Companies. I became a Project Manager in 1979 and worked in a number of job roles, including our initial implementation of IBM PCs in 1981 (management of project, training new users, etc). I started with Microsoft DOS 1.1 and have been using PCs on a daily basis since then. I currently work for another company in supporting an automated Commercial Lines policywriting system. However, I continue to work in the same building that I started my early career in the industry (as the other company purchased the data center). I am greatful for the opportunities to learn and put these skills to work over time in providing for my family. All professionals need continuing education and that has been beneficial in a professional that is constantly changing.
