Lani Davis has joined the AdvantageCS Special Services team, led by Scott Ghormley. Lani comes to ACS with a wide range of education and work experience. Most recently, she spent four years implementing time and attendance software at a software company in Livonia, Michigan. Although she enjoyed the job itself, Lani wanted a position that didn’t require her to travel an average of three out of four weeks a month. She heard about AdvantageCS from a former coworker, and joined ACS in June.
A business systems analyst in Special Services, Lani is getting her feet wet working on support tasks and performing QA, including regression testing. Down the road, she will manage projects for the group, where her implementation experience and fluent French will be valuable assets.
Lani has always had an interest in---and involvement with---computers. At age 16, she worked in tech support for an ISP and held that job through her undergraduate college years. Born in Ottawa, Canada, Lani moved with her parents to Dallas, Texas in 1994, and considers that her hometown. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from North Texas University and then enrolled in Texas Tech, where she studied law. Lani earned her law degree (juris doctorate), and joined a law firm in the trademark and patent department, but discovered that she found business more interesting than law.
In 2002, Lani’s parents moved to Michigan where her father works as a research psychologist and her mother is a nurse at the University of Michigan. Lani decided to make the move as well in 2010 and accepted the job at the Livonia software company.
Lani, husband, Evan, and nineteen-month-old Jack live in Ann Arbor. In her leisure time, Lani is an avid science fiction fan, with Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly among her favorite series. She also enjoys video games, especially the Borderland series and Mass Effect.
Welcome, Lani, to the AdvantageCS family!
