I’ve always been a natural leader. Since 1999, I have been involved with volunteer associations where I have received recognition for my work. Now, with more than 15 years of experience in project management and talking specifically about the last 5 years involved with the AACE Peru Section, I’ve exceeded my KPIs and have been promoted - because of my results - in the things that I do. I look it back at those successes and I know that I wouldn’t have reached them if I hadn’t built and led teams composed of highly skilled and diverse individuals. I’m really proud of my ability to get cross-functional (volunteer) groups to work on the same page. I think it's time to use the local experience to do more for Region 10 to promote and continue the important labor that the actual directors are developing, in alignment with the AACE Headquarters standards.
