About Me:
My name is Nikki Hensley. I prefer if you call me by my first name Nikki. I have worked at SWIC since Jan 2008. My background previous from teaching was in Internet Security. I got my associates from a community college and then got my Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's In Management Information Systems at the University of Illinois-Springfield. I worked for the Defense Information System Agency in Arlington, VA and Scott AFB for five years as a project manager in Information Security (specialty Virus and Intrusion Detection). I love the creative side of computers and continued teaching part-time until August 2014 when I accepted a full-time position as coordinator and instructor of Graphic Communications & Web Development. In this field there is always more to learn. I have passed the Adobe Expert Exam in Dreamweaver and passed the Adobe Train the Trainer Certfication Program. I am currently pursuing a Master's in Education Technology at Webster. I would like to take the Adobe Expert Exam in Photoshop soon and have been accepted into the Maryville University doctorate program for next fall.

On a personal note I love traveling and trying new things. Few highlights of travel was I lived in Europe, and have been to Thailand, Israel, Budapest, New Zealand, South Korea and South Africa to name a few. My dog Jake is 13. Thank you for taking courses here at SWIC and with me. I am excited to be teaching and hope you love web development and the Adobe products. As always contact me if you have any questions.
