For most people, Project Management doesn’t sound very interesting (or fun). For me, Project Management is a passion I’ve been chasing for over 20 years.
Having held in house positions with San Jose Repertory Theatre, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, Alliance Theatre, Horizon Theatre, Atlanta Ballet and Cincinnati Ballet managing non-profit databases for individual organizations or multi-organization consortia became the spark that led to my certification in Project Management.
Most recently, my consulting landed me in positions with The Long Center for Performing Arts and The Maritime Aquarium where I focused on database implementation, data migration and business process review and improvement.
I am truly lucky to be able to use my project management background to support Doraville Art and other organizations in Doraville, Georgia (Home) while remotely working for arts and culture organizations across the country!
I guess you could say I’m living the dream!
I am an Atlanta-based database and PMP project management consultant with extensive experience in the not-for-profit arts and culture field.
THE LONG CENTER
IN SHORT, I BELIEVE THAT EFFECTIVE DATA AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT ENABLE OUR ORGANIZATIONS TO HAVE GREATER SOCIAL IMPACT, AND THIS DRIVES ME EVERYDAY.
My own personal story is a testament to the fact that engagement with arts and culture changes lives. Effective leaders in our field play a critical role in this becoming reality for as many people as possible: bringing our work to the community, forging relationships, and ensuring stability and relevance in a constantly changing world.
Arts and culture organizations are always changing to suit the needs of the world we share, and their data management strategies and usage should follow suit.
REASONS WHY THIS DOESN'T ALWAYS HAPPEN
Regardless of the starting point or a leader’s ability to pinpoint the cause, I help arts and culture utilize data and technology to improve workflow. That is my passion.
My offerings are geared toward continued progress and evolution—these include business process improvement, technology implementation, project management and change management. These offerings all focus on elevating an organization’s data and process management practice without overextending the current human resources available. No single solution will last forever but having a solid project plan and process organization scan learn to be flexible and fluid to meet new challenges.
