Helen Sanders, Temple University

Helen Sanders is a seasoned professional with over 19 years of experience in the IT industry. She worked as a database developer first on an IBM mainframe writing COBOL for several years before her employer, Temple University, moved to an ERP system. It was through her support of Ellucian's Banner product that she became exposed to Oracle, SQL, PL/SQL, and the ODTUG community.

Helen is a graduate of ODTUG's second Leadership Class, and is program coordinator for the 2016-2017 class. She obtained a master's degree in educational leadership in 2013 and was promoted to an assistant director for the Student Collaboration Center in the applications support services area at Temple University during the summer of 2015. In the fall of 2016, she began her second master's program in business analytics.

Helen is very active in the ODTUG Database community and was on the committee to merge the DBA/development communities into one cohesive unit. She has organized TwitChats for the community, is involved with the community newsletter, and helps manage the community's LinkedIn group. She has served on the Kscope15, 16, and 17 Abstract Review Committees for the database track as well as for RMOUG (2015, 2016) and GAOUG (2015, 2016).

Helen did her first-ever live presentation at the Pennsylvania Banner Users Group (PABUG) Conference in November 2015, and second at Kscope16 to good reviews. In 2016, she served as Student Track Lead for the PABUG annual conference. In October of 2016 she collaborated with Oracle's Jeff Smith and together they created the first online training session ever offered to PABUG members, after which PABUG created an online learning track and appointed Helen to be the track lead for it. Helen holds board positions with the Network of Women with Careers in Technology (2015-2017), Temple Women’s Network (2014-2017), and Temple University College of Education Alumni Association (2015-2017).
