My Story

For more than 10 years, I have held various roles from leading large enterprise-wide projects to building project management practices, while developing talented leaders and practitioners. These experiences have afforded me with the opportunity to work with a lot of brilliant people on solving “big problems” with “effective solutions.”
In addition to helping others on their project management journey, I lead a high performing team of project managers and business process analysts at Prudential Financial. As a Vice President of Project Management at Prudential, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in New Jersey, I manage the operations and strategy of my group. My team provides critical support to multi-million dollar programs and core service delivery processes that span the globe.

Where I’ve Worked

2015 - Now
Vice President at Prudential
2013 - 2015
Corporate VP at New York Life
2011-2013

2008 - 2011
Technical PM at Cornell University
2005 - 2008

2003 - 2005

Prior to Prudential, I worked as a Corporate Vice President at New York Life, where I led a project management unit focused on the development of insurance products. Within the first year of joining the company, I successfully built a team, drove the use of project management as central to the company’s product development approach, and supported the rollout of multiple products.
Before New York Life, I continuously gained more responsibilities, and was frequently assigned the tough jobs due to my grit and “get-it-done” mentality. At Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of NJ, I led regulatory initiatives related to the Affordable Care Act, and managed various technology projects at Cornell University. During my tenure at Cornell, I completed a dual degree program at Seton Hall University, achieving an MBA and a Masters in Diplomacy.

In 2005, I built and scaled a boutique style consulting firm, that assisted small to mid size organizations optimize their business processes with cutting edge technology. I began my career in the technology field, as an IT Manager with The Salvation Army, after graduating from Stockton University with a BSc in Computer Science.
