About Me

I began my career in a management development program at Citigroup in the Global Operations and Technology function. I was quickly promoted from Senior Officer to Assistant Vice President to Vice President within the first 4 years of my career. As a Vice President within Global Anti-Money Laundering Operations, I was driving the implementation of globally consistent project management disciplines, while providing strategic direction and ensuring milestone achievement for cross-functional (Operations, Technology, and Compliance) projects. Projects included a multimillion dollar migration of operations from 53 countries to 3 regional hubs, standardization of processes, automation of reporting, and enhancement of Compliance governance and oversight.

I was recruited to UBS Financial Services by a former Citigroup colleague. As a Director in Wealth Management Americas – specifically within Asset & Settlement Services Operations – I maintained continuous alignment of program scope and ensured milestone completion for a portfolio of "change the bank" (strategic and regulatory) projects. I also developed processes and tools to improve team's project management skills and created a standard project reporting process.

Most recently, I was recruited to TIAA-CREF, by another former Citigroup colleague, to help establish a Marketing Change Project Management Office. After a year of establishing standards and managing a portfolio of projects I was promoted into my current position – leading the project management function of TIAA-CREF’s in-house creative agency.

In December 2013, I moved from New York, NY back home to Houston, TX and I virtually manage my teammates who are based in Denver, Charlotte, and New York. My four most recent managers have been women and they each have made a significant impact on my career. I truly believe in the power of women supporting women and I have joined NAPW in hopes of developing meaningful relationship with women both in the Houston area and more broadly.

Since moving to Houston, I have become involved with the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of Houston as well as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. I enjoy spending time with my family, doing Pilates, and traveling.
