Dynamic IT leader and professional with 25+ years of experience, I currently serve in the role of Technical Compliance Manager with Computer-Aided Engineering at UW-Madison. I am also a co-lead for our campus IT Leaders Program (ITLP) Forward steering team as part of IT Connects, am a past co-lead and founding steering team member of our campus Women in IT (UW-WIT) community, and currently serve as past chair and steering team member on the Big Ten Academic Alliance Women+ in IT Peer Group (BTAA WIT+). Throughout my entire career I have been an active participant and facilitator on a wide variety of strategic initiatives that promote inclusion, equity, diversity, and belonging in the workplace. Outside of my service to the UW-Madison I enjoy opportunities to hike in our National Parks, indulge in hobby geology, and build with LEGO.
