Dr. Cynthia Martincic has taught for our Computing and Information Science Department since 2001. After working several years in hospitals as a medical technologist, she decided to change careers, so she took a computer class on a whim, and has been hooked ever since.
Her favorite part about working at Saint Vincent is the friendly atmosphere and the location. "The campus itself is beautiful, and it is wonderful to walk out of my building and see the mountains and the farms. Since I work in a technical area, it is refreshing to have views of nature so close to work."
Her favorite course is C++ Programming (the introductory programming course). "I like teaching programming courses, because I like to build or make stuff – in this case, software applications, and I enjoy teaching others how to build stuff." Her love of building things and fixing problems goes back to her days hanging around her father's auto repair business "learning how cars worked and seeing how he went about diagnosing and fixing problems." She added, "Debugging computer programs is a similar process, actually."
Dr. Martincic also enjoys taking time away from the computer. She enjoys taking walks through the woods, working in her yard and reading books (printed books, not digital books, because as she puts it, "I spend enough time on digital devices when working").
