I'm an Agilist with a 16 year journey across multiple industries traveling from roles of business analyst, technical analyst/developer, team member, subject matter expert, project manager, manager, program manager, trainer, management consultant, ScrumMaster, Product Owner, agile team coach, and agile enterprise coach. I’m fascinated by the complexities of organizations and the art of getting things done. I adapt quickly and feel comfortable in environments of uncertainty and pride myself in working collaboratively to identify and apply the right tools for the situation.
