Summary of Prior Work Experience

I have over 17 years of experience in PMO setup, strategic Project, Program, and Portfolio Management in fast-paced and international environments.  Having served in every phase of the systems development lifecycle and in the sales arena has proven extremely beneficial on post-merger integrations, technology projects and quality improvement initiatives.  Serving in a consultant role has afforded me the opportunity to see every level of maturity and help drive organizations towards excellence, enterprise effectiveness, promote change and improve processes.

Personal Philosophy

I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve.

How does Microsoft Dynamics CRM improve your own performance?

Microsoft Dynamics CRM can easily be adapted to meet the needs of any project.  The ability to track budgets, timelines, actual vs. allocated time, expenses, status reports and resource planning in a single tool eliminates variability and greatly increases efficiency, providing more time to focus on other opportunities to improve organizational effectiveness.
