According to Denise, “My work career began at the ripe old age of sixteen and I have worked in many career fields through the years, most people have a career and work in the same career, with various employers or for themselves.  I would say that my various careers have made me very versatile person.  I have worked as a Nurses Aid during High School while attending a two-year course for Dental Assisting. After High School, I joined the Army served 6 years as a Dental Laboratory Technician. After leaving the Army, I taught Dental Assisting at a private career school which after several years led to becoming a director of a school.  During that time, I was the chairperson for a national test writing committee for National Certification for Dental Assisting as well as being instrumental with state testing for radiology certifications for Dental Assistants in the state of Texas.  I left the Directorship and made the decision to seek a less stressful environment. I found a position as a 911 dispatcher for a County Sheriff’s office for about Six years. This was a stressful position, but a different type of stress.

With this experience I left and went to work for a Utility company and developed their dispatch center, since none existed.  This utility company offered opportunities that led to a position as a Metering Supervisor for about three years.  It was at this point I began working in the area of project management, but not as a formal process.  My next position would afford me the opportunity to begin thinking about how projects are viewed and executed.  The position was as Telecommunications Systems Administrator, which included responsibilities for PBX, Fiber Optics, Radio Communications, and Physical Security.  Each of these areas involved a mixture upgrades, construction, and complete replacements.  This position was for approximately six years.  My current position is Technology Systems Project Coordinator and I am in a position to be very involved in projects, either by leading or as part of a team.  My interest has been in this area for some time now and it is a very challenging because of the range of projects.  Technology is an ever changing and growing fluid environment where we build stability.  That is a very difficult concept and standard to maintain.  With the ever-changing world of technology and the levels of integration we see in business project management is a very demanding and important factor.  I have appreciated all of my career choices because they have led me down this road.  With this well-rounded experience, I am empowered to strive for more and will be seeking the PMP certification to validate my experiences and skills.”
