Motivated individual, dedicated team member, and Navy veteran who strives to make lasting contributions to each and every project and workplace. Whether it is creating employee information security training, writing technical documentation for business continuity, or even creating marketing materials, I am a dedicated resource focused on both long and short term goals.
As a technical cybersecurity consultant, I help enterprise level clients optimize their existing toolset and make the right decisions when it comes to investing in their cybersecurity posture and creating solutions to fit their needs. I serve as a technical resource that can be counted on to keep up with the latest and greatest cybersecurity trends and best practices.
I am currently a Master of Science student of Cybersecurity at Georgia Institute of Technology, where my focus is technical information security and practices. My anticipated graduation is December 2022.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Internet of Things (IoT) Engineering and a BS in Electrical Engineering, focusing in cyber security and embedded systems from Florida International University. I had the honor of graduating from FIU as Cum Laude and with a World's Ahead recognition from the College of Engineering and Computing.
On my free time, I am an avid outdoorswoman. I enjoy managing and writing for my own blog, mountain biking, off-roading my Jeep in challenging terrains, hiking, camping, and glamping. I love road trips and escaping life on the weekends to explore a new park. I also love kayaking and paddleboarding, and heading out to the sandbar with my friends for some sun and fun.
I have a personal passion for the automotive industry, especially in Jeeps and trucks. You can often find me at car shows on the weekends and watching automotive documentaries.
Occasionally, you can find me on the couch binge-watching the latest Marvel shows on Netflix or indulging in my guilty pleasure, The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

A project to intercept, capture, and analyze the packets transmitted over the Z-Wave protocol by the Fibaro Motion Sensor and Aeotec Z-Stick using a software defined radio. If not secured, the Z-Wave protocol has many methods of entry and injection. With nodes identified in the packets, it is possible to tell what sensors are on/off. For example, if we can locate the node for a door lock, we will be able to tell if it is locked/unlocked.
