About Me:

I am a well-rounded project manager and proud Penn State grad relentless in self-improvement, skill and information acquisition, and adaptability – I’ve earned success and name recognition in two very different industries (oil & gas, real estate project management in banking) through those skills, being selected by name for specific project roles and having $10s of millions of dollars of on-time, on-budget project work scope under my belt. My greatest strength is being able to integrate processes and people towards common goals. I love the challenge!

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Your first choice school, Wharton, has been over-indexing GMAT scores in recent years so the fact that your 710 is 22 points below the latest class average of 732 is more consequential than it should be. It’s also notable that despite the fact that Penn State graduates a lot of students every year, very few of them ever end up at Wharton which, like HBS and Stanford, loves Ivy Leaguers, near Ivy Leaguers and public Ivies. With those caveats out of the way, let me just say your have an amazingly impressive background of accomplishment. Few product managers can say that they have a track record in seeing to completion $10 million-plus projects on-time and on-budget. And you clearly have challenged yourself with the big …

    Hello Ms. PMP To MBA! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    Congrats on your great interview success. I’m very excited for you. From the information you provided, it seems like you’ve made an impact at two very different but respected companies. My guess is that b-schools are going to love your resume. Also, I can’t think of the last time I met a female civil engineer! I also think your goals are very “right now” and mesh well with your background.
    I hope you are really prepping for your Wharton TBD. I feel like Fuqua and Tepper will be a cakewalk for you after that. Know that Wharton really seems to care about GMAT so that’s where you are at a bit of a disadvantage. But …

    Hi, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions. I hope I am not too late to chime in here. You have a very impressive background, I can see why you have received an interview invite. Since you are already well on your way, all I would like to add is that you really do need to prepare for the interview and the team based interview. Many people are intimidated by a group setting interview but if you are, don’t be ! Your work on the SWE should have prepared you for these group discussions- you want to add value and be memorable without being the loudest voice in the room or the one who likes to hear themself talk. Be yourself …
