I am a creative and highly productive professional with expertise in project management, finance, operational management & education
An educator at heart, I am fascinated by how our brains learn and retain information. I am passionate about people and how they find their place in the world. I am driven by developing opportunities for others to be successful. .
My repertoire of skills has been significantly enhanced by my transition out of traditional education and into business and finance. Always working from the heart of a educator, I have performed with a high degree of success as a project management consultant within some of our largest financial institutions:
Implementation of Enterprise Project Management Offices (EPMO) from the initial point of conception
Managing complex software solution implementations in response to financial regulatory requirements that are specific to Bankruptcy, SCRA Servicemember's Civil Relief Act and other consumer credit protection issues
Managing the initiation and planning phases of a KPMG internal special initiative KPMG Global Services (KGS) for KPMG's Financial Risk Management offices in the US, UK and India
Data systems management, data integrity, system solutions, MySQL queries and reporting
At the core of my being, is the artist and musician. Beginning the study of piano at the age of four and voice at the age of eight: music is my second language. I continue to study, practice and perform. I look forward to sharing that with you here.
