I’m a certified Project Management Professional in Pittsburgh, PA. I’ve been involved in Project Management for the better part of a decade, receiving my PMP Certification from the Project Management Institute in 2013. (PMP Number 1574066, if you feel the need to look it up).
I’ve worked mostly in Healthcare IT, managing projects of increasing responsibility and complexity over the years. My client have hailed from all over the USA as well as England and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
I started this website to share advice on how to pass the PMP exam but moreso talk about the leading topics involved in the field of Project Management. The story doesn’t end once you (hopefully) pass the PMP exam. That’s only the beginning. In order to keep your certification and grow as a PM, you’ll need to pick up PDU’s (Professional Development Units) and stay current with the latest methodologies.
If you’ve been involved in PM’ing or its close sister, Consulting, for any length of time, I’m sure you know that your outlook and approach to the world is different than others. Maybe you turn your personal endeavors or chores into little projects. Maybe you demand follow-up from folks who aren’t used to being so proactive. Maybe you fire up a spreadsheet program just to do simple math calculations. It’s a fascinatingly broad field with applications in every single industry and in many walks of life. Welcome to the PM Lifestyle.
