My road in life took a while to figure out.
Opted not to pursue a PhD in mathematics, but explore the corporate world.
Spent way too many years as a Chief of Staff (with no upward movement in sight).
Accepted a skills pivot assignment in the technical project management arena. I was scared to death!
Decided to be open to change and embrace new learnings. I absolutely love my new position.
Keep following my journey


Senior Technical Project Manager

I project manage the installation of backup networks for use by First Responders and public safety personnel.

Day to Day
