Principal, PMP


With nearly 15 years’ experience, I specialize in helping public sector entities assess, plan for, select, and implement enabling technologies across the nation.

Clients appreciate that I will challenge and push them out of their comfort zone to help them realize the benefits of changing the way they’ve “always done” something.

I was attracted to this career because I truly enjoy helping people and want to contribute to building a better environment for younger generations. I belong to the Chicago Women in Leadership, Project Management Institute (PMI), Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), and Illinois Government Officers Association (IGFOA). I also volunteer with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

I’m often asked to speak to clients, their boards, and at industry conferences, like the Illinois Government Officers Association, about best practices and trends related to the government industry and digital transformation.

I earned my B.A.S. in finance with a minor in accounting from Illinois State University.

These days, I’m very busy with my 3-year-old son and 1 year-old daughter. We like to dance, do arts and crafts, and play sports.
