1)     How did you get started in project management?

My career started in Business Operations where I was given the opportunity to work on special projects. I fell in love with being able to define the “Why”, “What”, “Who”, “When” & “Where” for my teammates and being able to solve problems, unblock barriers, and ultimately become effective as a team.


2)      What is your favorite project that you worked on or would like to work on?

Former Project- “Innovation Space”. I was charged with setting up a multi-functional team to organize, review and execute support of Innovation Ideas. These ideas would not only remove barriers / improve employee morale, but also ended up in Cost Savings for the organization. Within six months, the team had a future outlook of 10+ Innovation projects with a projected significant cost savings. Leading Innovation Space gave me a true idea of what I have wanted to spend the rest of career pursuing.


3)      What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Being able to solve problems that have been existing for years and make people’s lives easier in the process. Keep it simple and focus on solving the actual problem are my goals. I also love coaching others—while watching as they become inspired to become effective at their roles.


4)      Where do you see yourself professionally in the next 3-5 years?

I love what I do and I want to keep working with this skillset, just with more complex / larger scope problems. I would also like to lead a dedicated team or organizations dedicated to unblocking problems, setting up processes and best practices that make our business more effective at being excellent. In my heart, I am a coach and when others succeed around me because I’ve been able to partner with them, it makes my day! We are nothing without our teams and the relationships’ trust that go with them.


5)    Who is a leader that you admire and why?

I admire Queen Rania of Jordan. She’s elegant, well-spoken and an intelligent individual who is passionate about making positive change happen. Her influence and passion for education is inspiring, as well as her taste in fashion!
