The Tucson Jewish Community Center hired me to take care of the companies website, graphic and social media needs in 2015. I did not design their website, but kept it up to date and and added advanced functionality to the site to help employees and website users. I created a tool for them that automates the process of making flyers. You fill out a form, press go, and you are fed back a beautifully designed flyer with all the proper branding, plus the links are converted automatically to short-links with a QR code for ease of use. This tool has saved the organization nearly $30,000 a year by reducing graphic designer fees.
In April of 2015, I applied for, and was successful in acquiring, a Google Non-Profit Grant, which is an ongoing grant that supplies The JCC with $10,000 per month ($120,000 annually) in free advertising on Google. This increased the Marketing Department’s efforts ten-fold. The grant lead to the most successful summer camp season to date and a significant increase in program enrollment and membership.
In May of 2015, I began managing the company’s outsourced IT department. Since then, we successfully migrated from a self-hosted email server to an Office365, cloud based solution. We replaced and upgraded the buildings data storage and backup framework while improving redundancy and network speeds. As part of the agenda to update the tech infrastructure, we worked with Simply Bits to install new WiFi access points throughout the 110,000 square foot building.
