I started my own consulting business at 59 years old and within a year grew to 6 figures and recently married for the first time at 62!
As an award-winning, globally experienced PMO executive, I’ve dedicated the past 20+ years to the startup, turnaround, and bar-raising performance of PMOs delivering next-gen IT solutions.
As a consultant I assist busy C-Level execs with large, strategic projects and deliver results in a timely basis
✪ Cloud, Security & Managed Services Experience ✪
Currently as a consultant, I completed a large cloud migration and refresh to achieve better metrics for my end client and assure best practices during the migration.
As Director of PMO at Contegix, a premier cloud application service provider. Within a year, I guided the PMO and its remote team to become an innovative, strategic business partner valued across the enterprise for enhancing the customer experience, increasing efficiency, and optimizing the bottom-line.
Previously for HOSTING (a $100M provider of managed cloud/hosting services), I founded and grew the company’s first formal PMO, and built and led a remote team to complete hundreds of projects with industry-best metrics for on-time, on-budget delivery.
✪ “PMO Optimizer” ✪
Concurrent with my work, I’ve taught PMP Bootcamp for iCert Global, served as guest lecturer at Regis University through PMI, and presented at PMI conferences. Regarded as an industry thought leader, I’m often asked to share insights on how to create and manage best-in-class PMOs
