Welcome! 

If you're on this page, you're either really curious about me and my background, incredibly bored, or thinking of hiring me.  Whatever the reason, I hope this page will clear up any confusion you might have about my extensive and varied educational and work background and give you more information about me.

If you're hiring, the best way to get a hold of me is through LinkedIn. I respond to almost all messages sent through the platform. 

I've lived most of my life in Indianapolis, Indiana, which is also where most of my work experience is based.

I spent my sophomore year in high school as a Rotary International Exchange Student to Quimper, France. I spent a year in Premiere L at Lycee Le Likes and as a result, speak French relatively well.

After this, I spent 2 years at IUPUI to study Pre-Law (Political Science/Philosophy). I stopped as I had four children to care for. I hope to eventually finish my degree.

Professionally, I've worked in a variety of positions from Marketing Coordinator to Chief Operating Officer. My favorite roles have allowed me to perform process improvement, requirements gathering, data analysis, and documentation.
