Bio Brief

An experienced Program/Project Manager, I am comfortable sporting a variety of [ever changing] hats affording me the opportunity to get my job done while making clients happy with the end products delivered to market.

I am a Certified Scrum Master and Cornell University Certified Diversity and Inclusion Professional.

My process is Agile and iterative, sense of humor available on tap and delivery of formal project methodology vs. necessary flexibility is strikingly well balanced!
