Download my résumé

My journey started when I began building websites as a kid. I always loved the idea of creating something that the whole world could see! Graphic design stood out to me as a practical way to do what I loved, so I worked on the newspaper staff all through high school and college⁠—where I completed a Bachelor's degree in Communication Technology & Graphic Design.

Though I still have a keen eye for aesthetics, over the next 10 years my focus shifted back to the web where I worked on primarily Drupal freelance web projects, client sites for agencies (dallascowboys.com, weather.com and butler.edu), and redhat.com. I've been fortunate to hold a variety of roles such as Graphic Designer, Front-end Web Developer, UX Dev Team Lead, People Manager, and now Principal Program Manager.

Anyone I work with will tell you I'm passionate about organization and efficiency! As the PM of the Digital Acceleration Team, I gather stakeholder requirements and needs from work streams across the organization, and maintain the roadmap for the team. Part of my role is fostering collaboration across teams, clearly communicating updates around initiatives, and co-creating a vision for our group.

I am an active contributor to the open source project: PatternFly Elements web components. I'm also a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO).

I live in Raleigh with my spouse & dog. I enjoy photography, traveling, music, good food, and the great outdoors. I'm also obsessed with avoiding food waste! If this also interests you, make a copy of my free meal planning board on Trello. 😁
