I am a problem solver and coordinator. Throughout my career analyzing processes, systems, and identifying the basic 'how things are done'​ has been a reflex. Coordinating the resources to implement positive, best-practice, and sometimes novel solutions within complex challenges and ambiguity is one of my hallmarks. With a strategic and collaborative approach, I thrive on working with a team to execute results-based programs, systems, and continued process improvement.
