Summary

I received my BS in Computer Science from Drexel University, followed by a MS in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania. I am a certified project management professional (PMP) within information technology (IT) spanning over 25 years. I began a fifteen year-long venture with GE Aerospace (later known as Lockheed Martin), where I held a number of different positions, including quality assurance for hardware and software, program control, systems engineer and product control. After Aerospace, I tried my hand at Financial Systems for 7 years with The Vanguard Group, a financial company where I lead the Project Management Office (PMO). Currently, I am with the CDI Corporation, an Engineering Services Company, working for the last three and a half years as a project manager. As project manager, I am responsible for all phases of large scale IT project delivery, including conceptual definition, executive approval, managing scope, design, implementation, testing and production cutover. I am in charge of all communications to the executive committee, such as reporting status, assessing and explaining risks, and defining, documenting and controlling scope changes. On one of my most recent projects, I had to management and coordinate personnel on three continents with differing needs and expectations, all while ensuring Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance. My objective is to continue working in Project Management, however, would like to someday branch out into the healthcare or construction field. In the healthcare industry I could help with increasing efficiencies regarding workflow, benefiting patient experiences. In construction, I could leverage my project management experience in planning and management, while at the same time being able to work outdoors at times.
