CENIC is pleased to name Network Engineer Julia Staats the CENIC Outstanding Achievement Awardee for the Month of April 2016.
Julia joined CENIC as a network engineer in Operations, working in CENIC's 24x7 NOC. Through demonstrating initiative in developing her technical skills, Julia earned a promotion to Associate Core Engineer. She is extraordinarily productive and adept at juggling multiple assignments. At the same time, she makes each customer feel that her work on their behalf is the most important task at hand.
Along with competently managing her usual workload, Julia has also enthusiastically undertaken a new role: serving as the technical engineering point of contact for non-technical staff who are working with libraries to collect data in order to connect more than 100 library sites to CalREN this fiscal year. Quickly following her work supporting libraries, Julia also assumed responsibility for providing technical consultation services to the University of California in support of the University's plans to connect the many Agriculture and Natural Resources field stations to CalREN. Thanks & Congratulations Julia!
