This past January marked 22 years that I have been involved with projects in one form or another. Way back then, I started as a business system analyst on a mainframe computer in Honolulu, HI fresh off getting my Masters. Who knew, 22 years later that I’d find myself in New Hampshire, having performed most roles (data analyst, report writer, tester, program and project manager), worked in projects in several countries and companies in various industries, published some articles, and, even, presented to my colleagues on various PM-related topics. I truly am passionate about the benefits of project management. And, whether at work or at home (to my husband’s chagrin) I approach everything with planning, executing and closing in mind.
After being a member of the PMI New Hampshire chapter for 12 or 13 years and volunteering in various roles, I am choosing to take a more front-and-center role as President Elect. I have seen many people involved in some form or another. I have also seen the chapter grow. And I’d like to be part of a new chapter as we embarked on the next 15 years!
As President, I’d like to take on the challenges of trying to engage more of the membership – specifically the younger, newer project managers – and deliver what they need in their roles as project and program managers.
