What makes the OATUG mission meaningful to you?

As a Nevada OATUG Chair, I have encouraged members and invited vendors who have successfully implemented projects to give presentations.

NVOATUG has become a platform between its members to share their questions and ideas at the tri-annual meetings.

Please list your previous and current OATUG volunteer roles, COLLABORATE experience, and other volunteer or leadership experience with other organizations:

Currently I am chair of the Nevada OATUG.

In addition, I am also currently serving as chair on an employee committee at Southwest Gas, which is responsible for generating contributions for up to 146 charities in a year. Total contribution per year is currently $2M.

Finally, for the last nine years, I have been working on the local temple board (various positions), currently serving as a secretary. 

Why are you running for the board, and what skills, connections, resources, and expertise do you have to offer to the organization?

I am an experienced board member, having a MBA, PMP and other certifications. I enjoy working with others to achieve certain various objectives on time and with excellence. 

I have a diverse background that provides a valuable perspective to boards. I aspire to cultivate a sense of partnership across various organizations and to impact the vision and strategies that will lead OATUG into a better future.

I have worked on various EBS implementations and I have been a part of the Oracle User Community for 20+ years. I will bring much knowledge and insight, acquired over the years through various trainings and projects. I am highly interested in educating all stakeholders on the future of Oracle products.

If elected, I will ensure our focus is on increasing participation within the Oracle community to make OATUG a more vibrant organization. I will work to facilitate more communication between independent OATUG groups.
