EDCOE Team Member Spotlight – Keegan Sullivan
09:00 AM - October 26, 2022
Briefly describe your background (where you grew up, family, why you came to work for EDCOE).
I was born at Marshall Hospital in Placerville where my family lived until I was about four years old. We then moved to Cameron Park where I have lived ever since. I came to work for EDCOE because it was a role with a county team that involved helping kids, and I just had a gut feeling it would be a good job for me.
What is your department, title, primary work location, and how long have you worked for EDCOE?
I work in IT as a Systems Technician on the main EDCOE campus. I have worked here for about five months now.
Describe how your role helps support programs/schools/students directly or indirectly.
I go around to different sites to help support staff with their technological needs. I make sure all tools stay up and running. This means the students and faculty get a better experience.
What do you most appreciate about your department/team?
Everyone has been welcoming, friendly, and helpful.
What is your proudest moment at EDCOE? Why?
The work done on all the ViewSonic Screens (ViewSonics are large screens installed in classrooms that have an all-in-one digital interface, whiteboard, and computer screen) over the summer was the first big project I helped with, and I am proud to be part of the team that continues to support this new technology.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spare time is spent developing new skills from playing an instrument, 3D printing, painting, prop and costume building, and any other fun project that pops into my head as I trick myself into thinking I can pull it off.
What is something many people may not know about you?
I don’t know, I’ve always been open to share any story if it comes up. No secrets here.
If you could meet anyone in the world, living or deceased, who would it be and why?
I’d rather just draw a name from a hat of every person in the world and let luck pick.
From David Seabury, Director of Information Technology
Keegan joined our team during summer break, and he immediately started cross training and supporting our team with the numerous projects we had to complete before school started. He played an important role in supporting our Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp laptops, Chromebook deployments, and configurating our new ViewSonic Interactive Displays in our Charter and Special Services classrooms. He has shown to be a dedicated hard worker and is willing to learn something new every day. Keegan has been a fantastic addition to our IT team!
