I Get Things Done. I’m a Project Manager on-demand and I’m here for you!

Each team member has an important role and deserves a seat at the table. My approach to project health is a recipe of full team inclusion, accountability and cooperation. I lay the foundations and then initiate team discussions to align on approach, timing, priorities and resources. And then I see the work through by managing teams and deliverables. I maintain an open line of communication with each team member and 3rd party vendor, establishing trust, forging partnerships, solving problems, mitigating risk, and getting the work done.
