Regina Miolan, Scrum Master
I'm definitely a person that was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, and upon completion of high school, I went straight into the army. It's something I always knew I wanted to do. I served 10 years in the army and after the army, my family and I moved to Houston, and we were there five years and then I wanted to come back. I wanted to be around my family. There are experiences and memories here that I can't give my daughter anywhere else. I think that Ohio is definitely a welcoming state for veterans. What I appreciate here, within the Dayton community, the Dayton VA, they build a women's center just for women vets to pay attention to us because a lot of the issues, the health issues that we encounter, might not be that of our male counterpart.
I am a scrum master here at CareSource. I help teams mature. I help them identify gaps, and come up with solutions to fill those gaps to make them more efficient and more effective. I pretty much just took the talents and the skill sets I learned in the military with building teams, with creating comradery, and with leadership and just translated them into the role I'm in now. I like that moving to Ohio, or more specifically Dayton, I was afforded the opportunities to kind of explore where I wanted to take my IT career because there's so many different avenues that you can take. With that work-like balance, it affords me the opportunity to leave work at work, and be able to be of service to others in my personal time.
I think it's imperative to work with kids at a very young age, to show them what their possibilities are. Sometimes it's very hard to envision yourself somewhere that you've never seen. So to introduce kids to a woman in IT, or a woman veteran, it's impactful. In Ohio, I found growth.
