Her strategies have enabled multiple businesses to successfully embrace mobile technology and ranked her as a thought leader among her peers. She is an experienced conference speaker and occasionally contributes articles for Information Week, Channel Partners, and BrianMadden.com. Currently she sits on the Board of Directors for a new mobile credential, Credentialed Mobile Device Security Professional (CMDSP) as their Chairman.
