Shanda started as a web team intern in January 2020. She will graduate from Blackhawk College in May with associates of applied science in computer information technology, including certificates in PC application programming and web development. She has recently acquired certificates for Google Analytics for Beginners and Advanced Google Analytics. Shanda has contributed to the community by providing the Bi-State Literacy Council and Quad Cities Tri-County Transition Planning Committee by creating and building new websites for the organizations.
She selected the IT field when she returned to college because it provides the opportunity to continually learn new things. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, camping (no tents!), and spending time with her family, including her miniature dachshund, Tucker.
