YOUR 2021 PMIINW Board
Why we're here
Our goal is to promote the extraordinary talent of project management minded professionals in the Inland Northwest by showcasing the versatility and merit of our industry. Our chapter connects members with modern, innovative and agile techniques for professional and personal growth inside a thought-provoking network.
After working in recruitment and community-building roles with Eastern Washington University and Community Colleges of Spokane, I found my passion in being apart of projects that support the Inland Northwest. I served as Chair of the T24 Circuit for Spokane County United Way, leading an annual college recruitment fair that brings over 40 colleges and trades to Spokane for a week-long circuit.
As VP of Programs, I intend to build a team that recruits and supports speakers for the chapter dinner meetings and pre-dinner training events. I want to create awareness of the benefits of being apart of PMI, along with highlighting the values of earning a PMP.
I earned my PMP in March this year, achieving an Above Target in each of the categories. I want to use my PMP to support education, non-profit, and other programs that might not be able to hire a project manager full-time.
