Patti A Eddy
Retired from CenturyLink (formerly Qwest, currently Lumen) in May 2018. My position in the last 10 years prior to retirement was with the Information Technologies sector where my primary function was managing teams of geographically dispersed employees and contractors who supported production ordering and provisioning applications. My primary functions in this realm were tracking and resolving trouble reports, working with IT development for process improvement and application bug fixes, and being the point of contact for system and application user groups.
I completed one year of college and over many years took courses related to IT models of the time. Most of my skills were learned on the job, dictated by my position and what my managers needed to help our teams and the business succeed.
I have not been politically active with the exception of voting. This year I donated a small amount to Jamie Harrison and Amy McGrath senate campaigns.
I have not been a member of this type of organization.
I have participated in a few marches in the past 3-4 years to advocate for rights of women and support for reasonable gun control. I also donate food and other goods to neighborhood food banks, period kits, etc.
This is a very important project, one that I and my family heartily endorsed. We as Colorado citizens need to assure that the districts are drawn in a fair and unbiased manner which will serve all in our state. It would be an honor to participate
In my past experience I have found the data itself drives consensus. Facts and data used logically are the best means to bring about agreement as well as fairness.
I used analysis of data daily in my prior job. Once a means to obtain relevant data is derived, the data usually speaks for itself. For example if you track a specific problem for severity, number of occurrences, business impact, etc. you are able to devise and prioritize a resolution.
