I am the Senior ITS Project Manager in the NDOT Traffic Operations division located in Carson City, Nevada. Originally born and raised in Las Vegas, I started with NDOT after moving to northern Nevada, and completing my Civil Engineering Degree at the University of Nevada, Reno. In my role, I oversee a variety of ITS and Operations related projects including 511 Traveler Information, ATMS, Freeway Service Patrol, Traffic Incident Management, and TSMO. As a project manager for these programs and initiatives, I oversee all aspects of the projects including programming, budgeting, agreement execution, scope development, and project delivery. I thoroughly enjoy the amount of communication and collaboration I do for NDOT both internally and externally with consultants, other agencies, and the public.
