Hi everyone! I'm Katrina Prosise.
I've just recently started working on helping out implement openMRS for a non-profit as a summer job, primarily to set up reporting for now.
My computer background: Linux user for 19 years, with a little bit of system administration stuff here and there. I was a Computer Science major, but in my junior year switched to Environmental Science with minors in Systems Science and Computer Science. I'm more experienced in low level, backend programming, data structures, and simulation modelling, so a lot of the web application environment and tools used in OpenMRS are new to me.
Before returning to school, I worked for 6 years as a counsellor at a large homeless housing and mental health outreach organization, where I had experience using clinical record software as a user, and would occasionally help our IT team troubleshoot issues and set things up at new facilities.
While I'm currently working simply on implementing, in the future I would love to contribute the OpenMRS project and community!
