Jennifer A. Pivovar
Jennifer started working with computers before PCs hit the market. First with the Department of Energy transforming the engineering design process to CAD systems, then as Systems and Database Administrator for Site Engineering. Deploying the earliest Relational Database systems within engineering (on Vax clusters and Novell networks), she found her calling, implementing the Oracle Database on multiple platforms from version 5 to the present version 12c.
After receiving her MBA from the University of South Carolina, she went to work for Oracle Corporation as a database performance and architecture consultant. After ten years travelling globally, providing service to some of Oracle's largest customers, she retired and returned to New England. Here at VTC she hopes to share technical knowledge and practical experience from her years in industry with students in Systems Administration and Database Administration.
