Shamima Waltonwalton.jpg

Shamima is a programming intern. She completed a BA at St Louis University in 1991. She took a hiatus from the work force to stay home with her wonderful daughters: Malayka and Layla. Once the kids were in school, Shamima started working on a degree in Information Systems. In her spare time (if there is such a thing when one is raising a 7 and a 9 year old), Shamima enjoys reading, playing scrabble, Sudoku, playing on the wii with her kids and husband Michael, and being the queen of Harry Potter trivia (the books, not the movies).
