Experienced Consultant with Project and Product Management Experience
I am new to Upwork, but I am an experienced management consultant and entrepreneur with a 10+ year record of meeting/exceeding objectives in multiple business environments within the federal government and private sector.
On the consulting side, I leverage strong business acumen and subject matter expertise to help clients improve operational efficiency and outcomes through business transformation planning and implementation, increasing productivity by developing and leading high performance teams, optimizing business processes and workflows, and developing strategic relationships with client and consulting leadership. I've helped my clients move from vision and strategy to implementation and follow through.
On the entrepreneurship side, I am the founder and product manager for a pre-launch web based SaaS startup, launching fall 2015.
I've been a project manager, business analyst, systems analyst, program manager, product owner, product manager, quality assurance tester, financial analyst, marketing manager, swim coach, and board member. I'm looking to give back to the community and help others out as I've been helped out over the last 10 years or so.
I have an MBA from The Citadel, and am Project Management Professional, Professional Scrum Master, Professional Scrum Product Owner, and Six Sigma Green Belt certified.
