Vice President of Professional Development


I started my PI service as AVP of Events. Our team of dedicated volunteers planed and hosted chapter meetings, socials and PD Days. We started a new format called ” Express Meeting” and expanded socials in new cities and added a theme to PD Days. so we could have some fun while we learn.

While AVP Events, I attended the PMI LIM conference and talked with PMI leaders from other chapters. all over the country. I learned of new types of events that fit members needs by offering a variety in topics within busy schedules.,

As your VP of Professional Development, I want to grow our curriculum to provide the education and discussions that you need for advancement. I believe that this is our PMI and want to develop curriculum based on feedback from the 20/20 program I am open to new venues and new content within Project management to align with your 20/20 feedback. I want to highlight achievements in certifications and grow the mentoring program to help those new to the PM role or seeking PMP certification.
