Business

I have over a decade of experience in the corporate world for a major Fortune 500 global company, managing everything from product launches, transformation initiatives, infrastructure upgrades, offshoring and remote teams, relocation strategies, day-to-day operations, and more. I have also worked for and launched successful small and mid-size businesses. My formal schooling includes an MBA from Columbia University.
Career Development,

Career Development

I am a successful business and technology manager, with experience in developing the careers of my direct reports and providing input to others which I managed or worked with in a matrix organization. I also currently privately coach several clients who are trying to advance their careers, by advising them which credentials they need, planning to go back to school, and the exams required. Two such clients currently include a gentleman working as a pricing analyst for an energy company whom I'm coaching through his GRE prep so that he can get his Masters in Economics, as well as another gentleman who wishes to quit his construction job and pursue his dream of becoming a paramedic. For the latter, I've helped him identify the coursework required, starting with getting EMT certified in his state, while managing the financial barrier of going back to school.
Project Management,

Project Management

As a certified Project Manager (from the Project Management Institute), I have in-depth textbook and real world experience in managing multi-million dollar initiatives. Often you'll find that what you learned in theory is a great framework and helps everyone speak the same language, but you need to adapt it to your own organization and practice.

Computer

Microsoft Project,

Microsoft Project

As an IT Project Manager with a Project Management Professional credential from the PMI, I am well versed in using MS Project. I can help students in setting up projects, managing existing ones, exporting, and running reports. I can also help students that are working in both agile and traditional waterfall project methodologies, and introduce them to other tools such as Rally for managing user stories, or Quality Center for defect management; all of which tie into project management software.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

As an IT project manager, I have extensive experience using the MS Windows suite of applications and teaching others of various abilities to do so. I understand the differences of teaching adult versus college students, as well as professionals. Perhaps my hardest, but most rewarding, student was my 70 year old aunt, who learned how to use her PC, email, and Skype to communicate with her grandchildren.

Very Knowledgeable and Professional

I reached out to Nicole because I was feeling overwhelmed with putting together my performance reviews for work. This was my first performance review at my company, and it is taken very seriously. I was having issues with articulating what I've done in a concise and organized manner that would show the impact I've made. I sent Nicole a first draft, and instead of just reviewing what I put together and make edits, she took the time to hold a brainstorming session, which helped me to provide a framework on how I should evaluate my performance review and brought structure to my thoughts. Nicole has a wealth of knowledge in business and how to communicate effectively. Our sessions together were full with a lot of gems that I used for my performance review and best practices that I've implemented on the job. What I also appreciate about Nicole is how organized and dependable she is. She kept our sessions together action-oriented by having clear deliverables. With every irritation of a document I sent to Nicole, she will set a timeline of when I would get it back, and stuck to it. My performance review turned out fantastic thanks to Nicole!

Great Insite into Project Management

Nicole got me past a serious writers block issue and helped me get back on track with my project. She also helped by giving me a over view of MS Project, she has a great working knowledge of the tools as well as the concepts.
