As an Information Security Consultant at Advantage Technology, I work closely with executives and heads of departments to determine specific security needs and directives. I consistently communicate effective strategies with a range of stakeholders while assisting to identify gaps in current IT practices and recommend best practice solutions to reduce risk and maximize business opportunities.

Before coming to Advantage Technology, I worked as an Operations Manager at DuPont Chemical where I gained valuable knowledge and experience in complex large-scale environments. This experience allows me to be proficient in maintaining liaison with both internal and external organizations in order to ensure compliance and smooth working practices. I also bring valuable experienced in maintaining operational controls in order to meet the preset procedures and standards of a company. Before DuPont, I served in the US Navy where I studied Nuclear Technology.

In my free time I enjoy learning about different cultures, and I travel internationally as much as possible. I find that running clears my head and I really enjoy nature and I like to hike or walk in the woods.
