I'm currently the director of MIS at Home HeadQuarters, where I work on long-term IT strategy, project management, and anything else IT related (including taking random text messages at all hours). As a women in the IT field, I have experienced environments that have been fully accepting of women in technical roles and also environments that still have some catching up to do. I would love to get to the day when I don't have to constantly tell vendors that "I AM the IT person", even when they have my title in front of them. I've also experienced the opposite, where women hold a large number of technical leadership positions and long for that environment again. Although an IT professional now, I also have past lives in accounting and grant writing. I'm a serial volunteer (in a variety of causes), but looking to expand my network of people who are working in technical fields and assisting with STEM initiatives throughout Central New York.
IT professional who loves IT strategy, project management and mentoring. Looking forward to meeting new people. Big fan of STEM initiatives.
