Chief Information Officer
As a professional, I am a highly analytical and forward-thinking executive with deep experience in operations, technology, and cybersecurity. I have direct experience is several sectors, to include government, military, private, and most recently the higher education sector. I hold master’s degrees in Business Administration (MBA) and in Information Assurance/Cybersecurity. I hold several cybersecurity certifications, to include the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). As a person, I am passionate about leadership and inspiring high-performing teams to achieve their goals. I thrive in collaborative and cross-functional environments that put people first and honor people’s identities. I emigrated from Sweden in my early twenties and I appreciate cultural differences, encourage different points of view, and can communicate in several European languages. Having been fortunate to work with some excellent teams in my career, I have learned that my success as a leader is only achieved through the success of the team. As a member of my community, I believe in community service and I serve on the Ellensburg Business Development Authority (CenterFuse) as a board member and I volunteer as a mentor for the Youth Services Mentoring Program. I have also spent over twenty years in military service and I currently serve in the Washington State National Guard.
