Biography

My name is Nilda Folkens. I am a proven project management professional with broad experience in e-business, web design/development and graphics design. I have performed and directed a wide range of activities, including overseeing the development and completion of large-scale applications and implementation projects, as well as managing the creation and modification of internal and external websites, from project inception to project completion.

In my spare time, I enjoy being active with my four children's extracurricular activities. In the past, I've been on the board of directors for my son's baseball and football leagues and also on the various board of directors for my daughters' gymnastics, cheer and dance teams. I also enjoy participating in pet activities with my dog, such as the annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk held here in Austin, TX.
