Since 2003, I've worked on many projects, taking on diverse roles such as project manager, team lead, cloud engineer, and applications developer. Embracing a fully remote work model since 2008, I've collaborated with teams both domestically and offshore. I have passed on career advancement oportunities, opting to maintain a work-from-home lifestyle. Now, spurred by the pandemic, the evolving remote work landscape presents a chance to reshape my professional path while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
My primary goal now is to leverage my extensive experience and transition into a role where my leadership and project management skills take precedence over my technical acumen.
Across my varied roles, I've found that interactions with people and teams are more challenging and fulfilling than tasks like writing code or managing servers. This passion, coupled with my educational background in Communications, equips me with a holistic understanding of business dynamics. Consequently, I am well-suited for strategic roles both within and beyond the tech ecosystem.
While I do have relevant prior experience, I recognize the significance of formal education in making this transition. I recently completed training and earned certification as a Certified Scrum Master. Furthermore, I've enrolled in Project Management graduate courses at The Citadel, starting in January 2024.
