About Direct Reports

I'm the Group Program Manager for the Microsoft Dynamics AX engineering team covering Service Industries (including markets such as professional services, construction, architecture and advertising). I've been at Microsoft for over 17 years and was previously a Senior Product Manager for Microsoft Amalga Hospital Information System (HIS), part of Microsoft's Health Solution Group. I also spent 8 years as the Group Program Manager for Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, where my team created and delivered the Microsoft business intelligence and reporting platform for IT Pros, end users and developers as part of SQL Server and Visual Studio. I joined Microsoft after a role as software architect for a4 Health Systems, a hospital software company in my home town of Raleigh, North Carolina.
