I was introduced to project management during my search for a graduate program. After learning and understanding what project management was, I realized it had actually been part of my professional experience for quite some time. After completing my graduate degree in Project Management, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to fill my current position at Express Scripts as a project manager.


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

I’ve had the opportunity to manage a variety of projects during my time at Express Scripts. It’s quite difficult to pick a favorite; but the projects I enjoy the most are those that rely heavily on creative and innovative solutions.

The most rewarding aspect of my job is being able to work with some truly incredible people and learn something new every day.

In the next 3-5 years, I see myself searching for leadership opportunities and trying to achieve a balance in being able to be both a leader and project manager.


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

Shortly after starting at Express Scripts, I had the pleasure of meeting with Katie Walsh, the Chief Operating Officer of the PBM. In that brief and impactful 30 minutes, I knew Katie was going to be an exceptional leader. Katie’s genuine care and desire to develop others is admirable and inspiring. She leads by example and her ability to achieve and maintain work-life balance is extraordinary.
