I am a native of Pittsburgh, PA and a graduate of the University of Georgia. When I was ready for a break from writing my thesis on comparative political thought of the Renaissance, my past-times included writing op-ed pieces for The Red and Black newspaper, serving as a pledge master for the service sorority and as a bench officer for the Demosthenian Literary (debating) Society. I started working in SAP Security in 1997, after spending years in finance and accounting. My primary focus areas are in security process improvements, security toolsets, and controls compliance. I have been an active ASUG volunteer at both the local chapter and the SIG Community level, currently serving as Security SIG Chair. I was a member of the original SAP Net Promoters and was honored to be selected as an SAP Mentor in 2007. I am very excited about participating in the networking opportunites in the SAP Communities. I am currently employed with PwC in their SAP business applications practice.
