Biography

Katie Kwan

 

Actively seeking new contracts, I am a CSM, PMP in training, and a small business owner.

My industry experience is wide ranging from telecommunications to video games.  In that time I gathered plenty of skills and the ability to learn and adapt quickly.

I am also a Certified Spa Therapist, which may or may not come in handy one of these days.
