Pittsburgh, PA, US



I am constantly improving myself and look forward to what 2016 brings! I'm currently solidifying my scrum/agile knowledge.

Nothing is ever perfected. There is always room for improvement.

I am a Sustainability MBA with a PMP and a Six Sigma Black Belt looking to utilize analytical engineering skills alongside practical business skills. I became interested in project management when I realized that's the only way to move up in engineering. I became interested in banking and finance after studying for the Series 65 and going through my MBA program. I love the challenge of working with diverse teams to map and analyze process improvements and how they relate to all three bottom lines.
