Since starting at WNCC, Chris has been instrumental in upgrading our old database and administration site to a secure, user-friendly, and web/mobile based platform for the 21st century. He has worked hard in the conversion to ensure that data is preserved while also implementing new practices that make administration tasks easy and simple.
