For 20 years my professional experience has been devoted to project management. At first I was a COBOL programmer, then a team leader, then a project manager, and then an I.T. Manager. That’s when I learned that managing projects and people had its challenges and being a good PM took a special education and special skills. I dove into that project management pool and drank up as much as I could about Project Management. I devoured the PMBOK and the PMBOK Guide. I read all the recommended books and them some. I befriended the author of the PMBOK Guide, Bill Duncan. I attended PMI meetings, project management courses, classes, and certifications. I became certified by Keane Consulting and Digital Equipment Corporation in both SDLC methodologies and project management.
After Digital downsized I was quick to find opportunities in project and I.T. management (life after Digital). I became very involved in PMI and ASAPM and was appointed to both Boards of Directors. I served on the board of PMI for five years and ASAPM’s board for over two years.
I love project management. I love to mentor other project managers and I am also teaching Project Management, Project Budgets and Assessments and Program Managment at Endicott College. I am good at what I do. I understand the need for PM and SDLCs. I am passionate about project management and my favorite four letter word is "DONE" and I embrace Web 2.0 technologies (Drupal, WordPress, MySQL, PHP) and technology.
