I am an IT Program Manager with a passion for solving problems and achieving valuable outcomes! I have a Communications degree, which licenses me to do nothing… but offered me the opportunity to explore different types of roles. I ended up finding my niche in technology; I lovingly have coined my calling as a Geek Translator. I am not a technical resource, however, I understand systems and how they work together. I am a leader that brings organization to technology efforts.

What do you enjoy most about what you do in your STEM career?
Continuous learning and working with great people are my favorite parts of my career.
What is a fun, bizarre or insightful STEM fact about your field?
