My Story

One of the first questions one of my mentors asked me when we started our mentoring relationship was, "What is your story?  Why do you want to do what you do?"  To be honest with you I never really thought of it before.  It wasn't something I quickly had an answer to.

Well here is my story.  I realized after wearing all the project management hats my passion was business analysis.  I had a passion for it before it was ever recognized as a discipline or had a name.  I found that I loved interacting with people and helping them in finding solutions that would make their lives easier in the workplace. This was also confirmed when I took Strength Finders and my top strength was revealed as "Relator".  I love meeting new people and building new relationships.  Not only do I love building those relationships but I love learning from others and others learning from me.  That knowledge share is invaluable.  I have a passion around coaching, developing and mentoring others.  So I found a way to have the best of both worlds.  I love  coaching, mentoring and speaking about business analysis.  I have also found I'm a great leader, career developer, business planning consultant and event planning consultant.  I found a way to intertwine all my passions in one.  I don't love what I'm doing, I'm doing what I love!  There is definitely a big difference between the two.  The gap between the two is passion. I am doing something I'm passionate about and with that I will be successful and provide the best service to those I have the pleasure of serving.
