I have been working at Adobe since 2008.  For the last 13 years, my role has been essentially that of a human Swiss Army knife.  I have been part of a strategic programs office whose mandate was to work on initiatives in alignment with the organization’s strategic imperatives. As the organization evolved, so did its strategic imperatives, so it was like having new job every year – one that required that I ramp up quickly to a new part of the business, tackle a new business challenge, and forge new stakeholder relationships.
I started working in high-tech at the age of 17. I worked for two summers in high school as a Quality Assurance Specialist at Corel Corporation, where I logged more bugs than anyone on my team and displayed what my manager referred to as a “real flair for software quality assurance.”  I worked in quality assurance and web application development while concurrently studying full-time, then landed my first project management role in my senior year of university. I have been working in project and program management ever since.  I became a certified Project Management Professional in 2008.  
I’ve always been passionate about all things creative. I love to paint – having a paintbrush in my hand is my happy place. I enjoy drawing, lettering, photography, cooking, even creating an attractive presentation in PowerPoint will scratch that creative itch. 
I’m pretty much hard-wired to be a planner and my career path is a reflection of that personality trait.  Here are results from some common assessments:
Gallup CliftonStrengths assesses my top 5 strengths as:
1) Achiever    2)  Relator    3) Arranger    4) Focus    5) Learner
Myers-Briggs personality type:  ENFJ - Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling, Judging
Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI):  My Motivational Value System (MVS) is HUB Flexible-Cohering.  My Conflict Sequence (CS) is Green-Red-Blue.
I am a passionate and engaged member of my community both at work and where I live. My parents came from very humble beginnings and always made sure that we didn’t take the everyday comforts they worked hard to get for granted. My mother in particular instilled in us from a very young age that it was important to help others who were less fortunate and that service needed to be a part of our lives. I find volunteering to be extremely fulfilling – it helps keep me humble, grounded and grateful.
I currently serve as an Executive Chair for Women At Adobe, responsible for strategy and thought leadership for the Women At Adobe employee network, working with 30 chapters worldwide, Adobe’s Diversity & Inclusion team, and our Executive Sponsor. I am active in various local charities as well as Adobe initiatives including the Adobe Site Council (Ottawa & Boston), Adobe’s Pro-Bono Program, and Adobe’s Community Impact Team. I am the founder of The Wishbone Project, a cancer fundraising project.
