Meet Melissa Shillingford
With over 10 years of working in social justice, I have always been an advocate for producing an impactful change in the community for the betterment of others. Like many people, I was a procrastinator and realized how detrimental that would be to my personal stress level. I quickly began making changes to become more efficient and that was when I was introduced to Project Management. Learning Project Management skills not only improved my career but changed my personal life.
Project Management is a universal approach to getting things done and once learned can be applied to both personal and professional projects. It encompasses every aspect of life, from getting your family up and out of the house on time to planning a destination wedding, parents anniversary cruise, and even smaller events like company holiday parties and professional events. The skills are invaluable to a balanced and stress-free lifestyle.
