Master of Arts in Management: Project Management ◆ PMP, CSM, ITIL-f

With a background in both waterfall project management and Agile methodologies, I have spent over a decade building my career, supported by a commitment to continuous learning and a solid academic foundation. My experience includes working on a variety of projects such as Smart TV applications, custom web applications, IT infrastructure, digital publishing, streaming content delivery, and broadcast technology. I have had the opportunity to lead diverse teams in operations and engineering, guiding them through Agile transformations with a focus on collaborative success.

My journey in project management has been greatly informed by my academic pursuits. I completed a Master of Arts in Management with a specialization in Project Management from Avila University in 2020, which has been instrumental in developing my strategic planning and operational efficiency skills. Currently, I am furthering my knowledge in innovation and strategic management through a Master of Science program at Salve Regina University, which I anticipate completing in 2024. My foundational education also includes a Bachelor of Ministry from Harding University, obtained in 1999.

In my approach to project management, I prioritize understanding the unique aspects of each project and team, aligning strategies with best practices, company policies, and the specific complexities of each project. I believe in the power of teamwork and fostering environments that promote collaboration and ongoing improvement to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Outside of my professional life, I am the founder of Uberlândia Development Initiatives (UDI Brazil), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting under-resourced communities in Uberlândia, Brazil. Since its inception in May 2020, UDI Brazil has been focusing on Estação Vida, a community center in Shopping Park, providing essential services to over 150 children. Following its achievement of 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in December 2020, our mission has been to establish a reliable channel for international support, enhancing the lives of those in Shopping Park. Our notable contributions in 2023 to the community center include the installation of a security camera system, the rehabilitation of the main gate, and the purchase of new office computers. UDI Brazil is committed to making a lasting positive impact and offering a brighter future for the children and families in Shopping Park.
