Currently, while open to new opportunities, I spend my time running a youth soccer club with my husband. Seven teams and in the fall we will be expanding to nine teams. The web site for the club is under redesign at the moment. I am changing the direction of how our club is running by taking the web site to a member management process. This will take us to a whole new level of service. The focus is to run the club as a professional organization with processes that save time and provide the information the coaches need to be on the field coaching. I am a project manager with 20 years' worth of projects behind me. My first project was building an ice cream shop when I was 19. That experience shaped my career of project management. I just won a scholarship from RMC Projects to finish my education requirements for my PMP certification. Studying is adjusting all my years of experience. It is like adding punctuation to a paragraph of words. It is completing my view of project management.The last few years my focus has been on PM with training contracts. My teams have consisted of technical instructions, instructional designers and developers. I have successfully navigated the murky waters of delivering what the customer wants, when they want it and how they envisioned it. Social Media has become a passion for me. I use it as a natural extension of myself. The value is huge! Building a brand whether personal or professional it is an everyday event. Staying engaged with the environment and reading the landscape to offer content of value is a challenge I enjoy.My top skills are open communication, enthusiasm, leadership, understanding and motivating people and troubleshooting situations. I bring confidence to the table with a splash of knowing how to get the job done within a tight budget. I put the highest level of importance on education and self-assessment. This is what gives me the energy to push forward through any situation.
