I do a little bit of everything. I lead the cloud practice, and I am the team lead for IBM Cloud and several enterprise security teams.

Any professional awards and accolades you’d like to share?
Of all the things I’ve done, I am most proud of Highwire, especially when we were selected as the top agency in tech, a best place to work in PR and one of the fastest growing female-owned businesses in the same year.
What are you spending your time on when you’re not at work?
Playing and traveling with my husband, three children and Farfalle (our french bulldog)— spending as much time at the beach as possible.
What’s a fun fact about you that’s not in your LInkedIn profile?
I joined the Peace Corps and went to Mali, West Africa to focus on maternal/child health, where I delivered a baby on my first day in the village and eventually delivered more than 30.

I’m from the South. I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, and Houston, Texas.
What’s one thing you miss about where you’re from?
I miss the heat, Southern food, fireflies, warm beaches and “ma’am.”
