My Professional Experience

I am a Project Management professional with over 17 years of successful experience. Throughout my career, I have worked in different capacities including defining and designing technical solutions, business process analysis, stakeholder management, and change control process for IT project implementations, system configurations, and go-live support.

As a Project Manager in one of the Certified Best Places to work, I oversee and resolve a variety of medium to large scale complex project issues with a team of 80 -150 diverse work streams across the United States and overseas.

My role is to facilitate negotiations with stakeholders, to gather requirements and perform analytical studies of current business processes to determine gaps in performance. I also prepare project scopes, plans, schedules, and financial budgets to track project performance, develop metrics and reports for management progress updates, findings and recommendations.

Hard work and determination helped me develop my career to where I can truly say that I love what I do and that’s a blessing. The privilege to work in the comfort of my home is beyond what I ever imagined. Even after envisioning it years ago by penning down what, where, how I wanted it to be, it has taken the hand of God to be where I am today. He is the one who opened the door for my current position and continues to enable me to function optimally.

My desire is to help students, parents, and career-minded adults to reach the apex of their purpose, by teaching them to use the tools we have available, and through personal stories and those of others.
