Hi everyone, My Name Is Maria Hood. I have been a MS SQL Server DBA coming up to 6 years now. Working in both public and private sector companies previously in varying company sizes.

My main experience is on MS SQL 2000 – 2016 on Windows Servers; with a bit of Oracle database support and Middleware thrown in for good measure. Previously I worked in infrastructure, mainly with Citrix, Microsoft Windows Server and AD environments.

I enjoy being a geek and working on IT related things aldo a huge star wars and gaming nerd.I help to organise local LAN gaming events in my spare time.
