The final product glowing a blue color to display that it thinks you are sad (on Semester 1’s final product!)

Nothing academic about this picture. It was just a pretty flower I stumbled upon in a photo-walk.

About me.

Currently I am enrolled in the Executive Masters in Sustainability Transition Management program through the University of Bologna Business School, expected graduation of September 2022. I am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. I am an engineer by trait but a generalist at heart. I have worked at the university setting helping create the Title IX office and a myriad of Sexual Assault Prevention and Education programs. I have worked at the US Navy’s biggest supplier of submarines, helping as a Process Improvement Engineer. Most recently I have worked as Government Contractor to the N8 Budget office as a Management Analyst here in Naples, Italy. To learn more about specific projects, please visit my Experience Page above.

In my free time, I enjoy anything with good food or coffee. I also enjoy knitting, gardening, and various DIY projects such as wood working and creating mosaic tables with collected sea glass. Recently, as we have Amalfi Coast citrus trees in our backyard, I have discovered the joy of making Limoncello.

Pictured is my husband, our bio-son, and my two bonus daughters (his bio-daughters). Missing are our two kitties, Aglio and Olio.
