Not many people get to say they love their job, but I do. I bring new technology and security solutions to clients. Through partnerships with architects, MEP firms, construction management and the end-user, I offer vendor-neutral solutions as a consultant. I do not sell any product, therefore have no "skin in the game" when it comes to the manufacturer. Bringing new ideas to the client to best serve their needs is what I do. Each client has different priorities, and I pride myself in looking at all potential solutions. No "cookie cutter" approaches allowed
When I speak to people about the ICT industry, they always ask how I decided to make this my career. There isn't a "major" for this field in college. I followed in my Dad's footsteps. Most people became aware of the industry through the military, working for "Ma Bell", or a friend. As one of the small percentage of women in the industry, I want to change this. I am currently creating an Educational Platform that will allow a high school student to walk right into a career.
I am an RCDD, RTPM, DCDC, BICSI North Central Regional Director, BICSI Board Member, Membership Outreach Development Committee member, Education Standards Committee member, BIM committee member.
My firm is EDGE certified with the State of Ohio. One of my goals for BCL is to partner with Construction Management firms to act as the project manager for Information Technology Services. I am also an Owner's Representative for ICT.
I have been in the information technology industry since the mid 80's when the first PC hit the market. My career has been varied over the years. I started as a receptionist/shipping and receiving person, and worked my way up to running a multi-million dollar company. Since selling that business, I have worked for contractors, distributors, and a manufacturer of telecommunications equipment. Now I am the CEO of BCL Enterprises located in West Chester, OH.
