Tell us about you!: Aiming to always be a strategic thought leader and trusted advisor, I serve as a member of the Executive Team at Gallaudet University, and the Chief Operating Officer. My role is focused on impacting over 10 departments and ensuring strategic new capital investments as well as team optimization initiatives such as a WorkDay ERP implementation and human capital resourcing and reskilling.

I consider myself a problem solver, using a structured methodology, leveraging best practices and developing bespoke approaches aligned to addressing organizational challenges. I came to Gallaudet University as the former Chief Innovation Officer for Communication Services for the Deaf (CSD), leading the Social Venture Fund, which provided funding and executive support to various Deaf owned companies. Before CSD, I held a 14-year career at Accenture as Senior Manager across multiple roles in Finance, Management Consulting, Global Operations, and Strategy Consulting. My work with Fortune 500 companies focused on realizing strategic objectives such as streamlining operational efficiencies, implementing new operating models, and developing strategies for how emerging and innovative technology will intersect with business and operations.
