I enjoy a difficult, challenging project and figuring out ways to overcome and get it to green through strong communication, detailed understanding of risks and issues, and transparency with leaders to provide the information to make critical business decisions.
I am a leader in the delivery of Project and Program Management solutions for Chicago. I am also an Account Manager for an insurance client, where we have implemented large-scale process, program, and technology solutions over the past 5 years, working alongside a strong team of Centric consultants.
Prior to Centric, I spent 20+ years at Hewitt Associates and AonHewitt, starting as a developer building compensation survey and market pricing tools. I continued to grow in leadership and project management, ultimately leading the Application Development group for the consulting side of AonHewitt. We built a strong offshore team with Manish Mehra, who now leads our Centric India team.

Get to Know Me
I am happily married with three great teenagers/young adults and feel blessed for my time with family and friends. I enjoy volunteering in the community through our high school booster club, Boy Scouts, and our church. In the summer, you can find me relaxing at our cottage in Michigan, at a rooftop bar in Chicago, or reading a book on our front porch.
In the winter, I enjoy skiing with my family, Centric happy hours in the Loop, and trying the latest restaurants with my neighbors and friends.
Who inspires you and why?
All of my peers and friends at Centric! They bring such energy and creativity – I learn from them each and every day.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Doing the Sunday crossword puzzle on the couch all Sunday afternoon!
Where is your happy place?
Northern Michigan, at our cottage, spending time paddle boarding, waterskiing, tennis, a nap in the hammock, and a bonfire with friends and family to end the day.
