It's hard to "do the right thing" if you have no idea what "the right thing" is! As an IT veteran with 20+ years experience building and leading teams; guiding organizations through strategic growth phases and implementing multi-tenant business applications - I am uniquely equipped to find the "right" path and am an expert in keeping things moving.
I am exceptional at designing and implementing successful models for communication and collaboration; building team resiliency and raising morale - resulting not just in measurable results but also in producing thoughtful, engaged leaders throughout all levels of an organization.
As a leader, I believe it is important to ensure holistic allegiance to the mission and to clear/stated values and goals. I am able to drive multiple, concurrent projects from the requirements gathering stage to UAT to implementation while managing scope, budget and personnel; however, I also believe in creating frameworks where individuals can own their work; develop professionally and become resilient enough to find their way forward through any "set-backs" and/or false starts.
In addition to all of this fantastic-ness, I am creative, well-rounded, fun (and funny) with a passion for helping individuals and organizations grow capacity while cultivating authentic, reliable connections with their customers, communities and each other. I have managed a variety of "system overhauls" and have demonstrated my ability to steer people through these upheavals in a way that builds solidarity, increases buy-in and improves efficiency.
