As the executive leader of the ARCO/Murray technology organization, my responsibility is to define and lead the strategic position of ARCO/Murray's technological roadmap, then research, develop, and implement the technologies used to successfully implement that strategy.
I established the program for operational effectiveness, building on the strength of the organization as a whole, connecting teams and individuals across the company to leverage their varied skillsets. You may be asking yourself, 'what does a project for the Operational Effectiveness program look like?' The easiest way to identify this is if there is a project or idea that would extend to multiple departments throughout the company, it would start at the PMO. Depending on the work being done, there is a huge amount of coordination and communication around what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and how it will benefit the organization. We're able to identify the necessary contributors and focus on the goal at hand, so those involved can focus on their work at hand without fear of losing track of what’s most important.
Senior Project Manager
I manage projects for the data engineering teams at Centro. That means that on a regular day for me, I'm working across at least three different engineering teams (4-15 people), their product managers, and the internal and external customers we serve in order to deliver smarter, faster, more efficient ad serving technology. That involves organizing and prioritizing day-to-day project work, planning, forecasting, and estimating future work, and determining what resources need to go where in order to accomplish the work. All of this work is then communicated to engineering, design, sales, executive leadership, and whoever else needs to know what's going on. It's some parts Agile, some parts Lean, some parts madness.

Interactive Technical Manager
I work with a team of developers to deliver our digital products to our clients. This involves collaborating with my team, as well as the rest of the competencies throughout the company to conceptualize, plan, and execute our projects. It's a lot of fun.

Senior Account Executive
Proof Integrated Communications | Burson-Marsteller
I work with clients on multiple accounts to determine their needs. Once we figure those out, in addition to the account responsibilities, I work as a project manager with internal creative and technical teams to determine the best solution for aforementioned client needs. I also work continuously with the account team on our internal processes and how to work more efficiently in our day-to-day business.

Oncall Interactive (now RDI/A)
The Account Manager role was all-encompassing at Oncall. I was responsible for almost all client interaction, including building sales and managing scope on current projects. Internal work involved working with small design and development teams in a hyper-agile environment, while communicating progress to both internal and external stakeholder on a daily basis. This took great organization and communication for many challenging situations.
