My background includes 10 years of Harvard University experience beginning in Financial Administration where I worked across various financial processes and systems including Oracle, Accounts Payable, PeopleSoft, and Procurement, before transitioning to Business Lead for the HCOM procurement project (predecessor to B2P). In this role I served on the steering committee and across Harvard schools to build stakeholder relationships, analyze and adapt financial processes to a centralized procurement model, and supported the project and school leadership with statistical and narrative reporting.

After leaving Harvard and moving to Hawaii I worked in the ed-tech space for several years, managing state education contracts with private technology providers to develop solutions leveraging federal grant funding streams. Most recently I've explored ways to align my professional skills and experience with my growing interest in the field of psychology and social sciences and am both happy and grateful for an opportunity to support the mission of the Harvard Department of Psychology through a position in the business office.

Fun facts: On trips to Asia & UK (pre-covid) I had a great time exploring local tea houses/ceremonies including Chinese gung fu. When I'm not busy raising kids, working, traveling or spending time with family & friends I love to write and record songs.
