When Sienna graduated from East Carolina University in 1986, she wasn’t sure where to go next. She didn’t have a job lined up, and she couldn’t find anything in her field. Her family encouraged her to take a vacation in Hawaii for a good dose of rest and relaxation. Those weren’t the only things she found there.
After two weeks, she landed her first software engineering job and ended up staying in Hawaii far longer than her original vacation plans. In 1989, she relocated to Silicon Valley to pursue her ambitions at Dupont, Viacom, and Sun Microsystems. Her role as the project manager for an enterprise-wide initiative at Sun Microsystems launched a 20+ year career driving mission-critical projects, bringing her skills to state government and companies like CenturyLink, Boeing, and Visa.
In 2017, Sienna opened her own project management consultancy – PMP Insights – to teach and mentor the next generation of project managers. In 2020, she joined Corporate Solutions at Front Range Community College to reach even more students with her knowledge and expertise.
What sets Sienna apart from other project management consultants is her special brand of finding solutions and relating the facts. She is the calm in the eye of the storm. She brings clarity into chaos and helps keep projects moving forward in spite of it. Clients and students alike have benefited from her depth and breadth of knowledge of cutting-edge technology and PM methodologies like Agile and Waterfall.
My Commitment to You
I always approach life with a can-do attitude. There’s no challenge that can’t be overcome. When conventional methods don’t work, that isn’t the time to give up. Instead, it’s time to seek out bigger, better, faster, more effective alternatives.
I earned the nickname “Wonder Woman” for my knack to reach across functional divides, build bridges, and re-establish broken connections. Even if it required working outside of established procedures. I’ll show you how you can achieve similar feats within your team and organization.
I believe in lifelong learning. There are always areas where we can grow and improve personally and as project leaders. That’s why I continuously transform established leadership, project management thinking, and practices.
As your guide, I’ll teach you industry best practices and share practical knowledge I learned over years of experience in the trenches. As your mentor, I’ll help you identify and nurture your superpowers – your innate gifts, attitudes, and skills – so you can lead with integrity and drive your projects to successful completion. Finally, as your coach, I’ll encourage you to trust your intuition and courageously face the obstacles standing in your way.
