Passionate About Creating Excellent Experiences

I help organizations define priorities, refine processes, and establish new systems in order to exceed performance goals by identifying business challenges and alternate solutions that can be solved through technology, then leading conversations between business and technical teams to ensure solutions are implemented effectively, on schedule, and on budget.

With a solid background in communication and planning, IT systems, and digital environments, along with a respect for people and mission, I will be a strong asset to your organization.
