tree strepek, creative

GoodwillFocused- Business Owner promoting pro-American values, real food & healthy families that talk to each other around the kitchen table.  American Youth are Brilliant!

Thank you for visiting my catalog of projects website.  I'm a technologist who loves nature and families.  My family values challenge me to set the highest standards. I try to live up to them and use the engineering skills I have acquired to share the goodness of the Lord and promote JOY in the digital space.  I have to give God all the GLORY because it's easy to share the natural beauty @Hilltop Farm USA.   I just point my camera & hit record.

I focus on healthy living and balance- that includes taking great care of our animals, our kids and our little homestead with my Honey of 24 years.  My encouragement to other Moms is to stay present.

Through my personal channels and the iTreeware brand 'we' promote good will; advance wholesome education, encourage Mom's to Love their families well, inspire young adults to identify & realize their intellectual gifts, promote simple-wholesome living, promote chemical-free products and self care for mental health.  I think it's common sense.   Funny.  Did you know Chickens ❤️ Kale?   it's true.  Dogs really like Eggs🥚 

Utilizing Technology with Purpose. 

iTreeware Gives Back by Preparing.
I learned how to create software in the 90s using, most importantly, C to manipulate hardware pointers bit by bit.  I refined my reporting and computing skills over many years finally realizing Sr. Oracle Consultant. Over my career I created RESTful APIs in Java, consumed JSON packages and wrote front end code to create a beautiful user experience that creates user engagement and holds the users attention.  At present I am focusing on Hilltop Farm and learning Python/Docker/AWS/Kubernets to re-enter the technology space in Chicago.

🍃Tree was at The 1st Chicago Urban Sustainability Hackathon in Chicago which was focused on urban initiatives and breaking the bonds of poverty in Chicago's poorest neighborhoods.  Mayor Rahm Emmanuel challenged us and we answered.  Our team was lead by Ali Diab & Eve Tulbert who steered our vision to use a mobile app to bring community programs to students while not at school.  Our team focused on making an easy to navigate, gamified app to bring STEM students together with hands on experiential activities in select community environments coordinated through local zoo/ park/ museum programs. The educational idea was that teachable moments often happen outside the classroom and PlanetLab would make getting educational experiences into kids hands easy for Mom & Dad!  

I love the rapid software development process-  listening for process flows, data elements, developing rough UI sketches--> then translating that information into a database schema for the database design/  creating the code to actually create the database.  Initially we worked together as a lean team (Mia/Andy(frontend-AngularJS expert), Jeremy(frontend), Walt(backend python/flask expert), Theresa(frontend/edTech/analyst/ui design), Eve(project boards/visionary/coordinator), Ali(storyboards/design magic/digital artistry/graphic artist) at the 1st UrbanSustainability CleansWeb Hackathon Contest.  Our prototypes is python, flask, aws,  angularJS, html5, css,  Our 1st hackathon concept was talked through and illustrated by simple user engagement with HTML5 UI.   Bravo Eve!  We won 3rd Place!!  Our team kept the competition going into the next round.  Very Fun.  PlanetLab won FIRST PLACE in the 2nd round due to our weekly dedication!!

technology. Created in 1.5 days.

The 1st Facebook Hackathon in Chicago focused on urban initiatives and breaking the bonds of poverty in Chicago's poorest neighborhoods where kids might only venture 1 block in any direction safely.  We partnered with 'my block my hood my city Chicago' to understand the core challenges faces by inner city families. Technologies utilized by our app set out to address the problem of generational poverty with SparkAR Instagram Filters, FB Messenger BOTS and ReactJS.   The concept of kids only SEEING trash laden, unkept lots & un-safe spaces is something our app tackled in our instagram-like filter that gamified beautifying inner city neighborhoods.

🍃Tree Gives Back to the Planet.  

🍃Tree rejects common use of plastic and chemical ingredients that are not excellent for families.  Terpenes are the all natural botanical aroma molecules in scents we all know- peeling an orange, the smell of crushed pine needs, lilac, cinnamon and lavender.  With the power of scientific research we have learned Terpenes are the link between scent and how aroma makes our bodies feel.  Very Cool!

It is my opinion that  Hobbies are important to sustaining a passionate life.  I enjoy outdoor adventure, tennis, swimming and Alfred Hitchcock movies.  My husband of 24 years and I enjoy classic black and white movies with Hollywood stars like; Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn(who we named our daughter after), Jimmy Stewart and Gregory Peck.  In addition to active hobbies- I am a technology hobbyist for fun.  As an artist I paint in the digital space advancing Simple Living concepts that are good for the planet and families alike.   Really- I do not have time for all this at once- I have to pick and choose how to spend my time.  It is all great stuff.

    • Self-Love 
      • meditating in the warm sunshine
      • Yoga
