Its been a very fulfilling experience volunteering with PMI-SAC! I consider myself privileged to work closely with members of the board and also to serve chapter members. I have served for over a year, even though that was never the plan, and now looking forward to another year of service.

Areas of Expertise
Project Management


I am a PMI certified project manager with over 10 years’ experience overseeing delivery of high-visibility projects across multiple industries including upstream energy, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Information Technology (IT), and across the entire project life cycle i.e., initiation through execution and closing. I am passionate about excellence in project delivery, clients success and development of project team members. Over the years, I have developed considerable skills in effective project leadership, driving ownership mindset among cross-functional project teams, designing performance metrics across key project stages and constraints i.e., scope, cost, & time (schedule), building strategic relationships for project success, and influencing project stakeholders through timely communication and transparent reporting of project status, issues, and risks. My current interests are in financial management and capital budgeting for projects in the environmental and renewable energy industries. I am currently the Newsletter Coordinator for the chapter and work closely with the VP of Communications to ensure members are kept informed of upcoming chapter activities.
