I'm a highly motivated, detail-oriented, self-starter technology project manager with 17 years of industry experience and PMP certification since 2008. I'm also a Certified Scrum Master with experience as a Product Owner. Since 2007, I've focused on project management for corporate compliance processes and tools. I've got experience working at a large software company, a small startup, independent contract work, and a Big Four consulting firm.

I started writing code when I was 7 years old in BASIC on my school's TRS-80s and my beloved Commodore 64, so I've been involved in technology for most of my life.

I launched and managed three profitable artisan small businesses online - one selling custom jewelry and hand stamped metal gifts on Etsy, another creating custom photo books and scrapbooks for busy people, and the current one selling premium notebooks imported from Germany.
