What I love about Microsoft Project
Microsoft Project can help businesses of all shapes and sizes with all kinds of project needs effectively manage their internal project communication about the schedule. It helps project managers talk to sponsors, clients, and team members about what is going on, when to anticipate key events and how changes alter the outcome. Depending on the audience you can communicate via charts, tables or reports which provides a lot of flexibility. 

Personal Mission Statement

What I love about training
My fondest joy in training is seeing the expression on the students’ faces when they grasp a new concept or technique. 

What I love about project management
Project Management provides guides to business processes and procedures.  I think of it like this - if someone asks you to walk through a building and make sure you walk through every room on every floor, you might miss something important simply because the layout wasn’t logical. However, if someone gave you a road map of how to get through the building and a checklist of key areas to visit, you are much more likely to cover every room. That is how I feel about project management, it gives me a starting point but it is still up to me to determine how to use that information to be successful at the task at hand. Project management helps me make sure I cover all the important areas in an efficient and logical approach.
