About
Biography
I’m a CPA and seasoned career business analyst, applications developer, and project management professional with 25 years of progressive experience. Over my career, I’ve moved between employee and consulting roles providing a unique dual-sided perspective. I understand what it’s like to be an employee who wants to maximize their contribution and advance, as well as, a consultant who must be adept at engendering customer value using tools and experience.

Today as an IT professional, I continue to competently use a variety of tools to promote customer value. However, technical skills are not enough; My career exposure has taught me a myriad of soft skills to effectively manage projects, facilitate meetings, present information, communicate verbally/in-writing, and lead teams of professionals.

I now want to share my knowledge and experience with other professionals who seek to fortify their skills and sharpen their competitive advantage.
