PROFILE

ABOUT ANTONIA

WHAT I LIKE BEST: Working on awesome projects with passionate people in a mutual learning environment.“

It all began with her first computer.

Little did her father know that by giving Antonia her first computer, he would be seeding his daughter’s career. She was eight years old at the time and getting that computer ignited a spark. As time passed, her passion for technology continued to rapidly grow, and by the time she was in high school that interest peaked. She completed a variety of Computer Science courses with “flying colors” and researching and buying all the latest gadgets became one of her favorite pastimes.

Educational pursuits fed the spark.

Antonia’s journey toward her professional career began with pursuit of an Associate Degree at Horry Georgetown Technical College in Conway, South Carolina. While there, she studied Computer Technology with a minor in Web Design, and placed 3rd in the AITP Southeast Region 7 Conference where the best and brightest students go head-to-head for coveted awards in information technology. The achievement not only reinforced her technical talents; it also revealed a hidden one. A Horry Georgetown instructor took notice of her “eye for design” and encouraged her to hone her skills in Web Design and Front End Development.

This led to her enrollment at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Here, Antonia was recognized for excelling in her studies and participating in the annual WebRaising event where students, faculty and staff join together to build websites for local non-profit organizations in Atlanta. She went on to obtain her BFA in Web Design and Interactive Media, and earned awards for Student Success and Outstanding Contribution to the Department, both in 2007.

Her professional career speaks for itself.

Her ambition and drive to succeed translated well into her postgraduate career. Antonia landed an internship with AT&T Advertising and Publishing, and has since enjoyed success as a Professional Web Developer. She developed excellent working relationships with her colleagues at Cornerstone Media Group, and in 2009, received the Gold Standard Award for Best Page Design (Tulsa Area of United Way) while working at the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta. During her tenure with Elsevier/McStrategies, a world-renowned healthcare publisher, she also ventured into E-Learning Development and Project Management. Throughout her career, Antonia has worked as a Content and Multimedia Developer, Information Architect, User Interface Designer, and Usability and Quality Assurance Manager.

So where does Antonia Burroughs go from here?

Besides staying current in an ever-changing industry, one of her long-term goals is to write, teach and speak on a variety of Web topics. Whether she remains in Metro Atlanta or finds her way to Silicon Valley, one thing is for certain: Antonia Burroughs will always “dream big, work hard, and learn as much as possible” on her journey as a creative and technical Web professional.
