Under her leadership, the state’s compliance team is utilizing a formalized GRC framework to manage four regulatory audits of IT risks. Within a very short period of time she has had a profound positive influence on the culture of the team. She also founded a women in technology group focused on lowering the chronic underrepresentation of women in technology.
