  • CEO of Intelleva Inc. – Started and run my own consulting company. Here I have had the unique opportunity of building my brand and ensuring that we are that small business firm that always delivers technical solutions most relevant to business and that provide a high return on investment.  In this role, I built key relationships and helped the firm build key teaming relationships with industry leaders such as Booz Allen Hamilton and BAE Systems.

  • Manager at Deloitte Consulting - While at Deloitte Consulting, I supported the Department of Navy – Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) PMO by leading a team that developed and applied management best practices to validate network assets accounting for $80 million deployed across hundreds of locations.  My team built asset management best practices, conducted detailed product end of life analysis and the related impact on asset valuation which help the Navy clearly understand their environment – their critical resources, where they had duplicate assets and underutilized assets.
  • Associate and Booz Allen Hamilton - During my tenure at Booz Allen Hamilton, I supported the MILSATCOM Joint Terminal Engineering Office, by providing terminal systems engineering and integration expertise to the multi-billion dollar Transformational Satellite (TSAT) Program and assessed the impact of transitioning to IPv6.  Here I managed a $1.4 million dollar contract, lead a my team in developing white papers, publishing leading technology papers and helping provide design expertise to the Government.

What is the most important skill you bring to a corporate board?
I bring a pragmatic approach to technology implementation in an organization that ensures a thorough analysis, well-funded recommendations and the creation of buy-in with the various stakeholders. I do my best to become an organization’s trusted technology and business advisor. My deep understanding of technology from software to hardware, development to support, planning to production; and my ability to ensure technology supports key business drivers helps firms leverage their IT department to the fullest potential.
