Why do you want to serve at the board?  ​

I received a lot of support from the IIBA community when I was new to Seattle and studying for my CBAP exam. I have served as VP Programs for the past 1.5 years. I now would like to continue to give back and use my knowledge and skills to bring the IIBA community together. I believe in the power of networking and am passionate about knowledge sharing. I will continue to leverage my network to help find guest speakers for the chapter meetings and organize chapter events. In general, I will always be available during the chapter meetings, help out with logistics, greet people, and answer any questions new members might have.
