State of Montana



I have over 18 years’ experience with People Soft HCM and the State of Montana. I started as a user of the system and worked my way up to a management position; where I have served for the past 14 years. I am the the liaison between 33 agencies and our Technical Services staff for support and maintenance of our HRIS systems. I am responsible to determine common interests and make recommendations for improvement for our enterprise systems.

For the past five years, State of Montana has implemented several SaaS products that integrate with PeopleSoft.  We have also been working to remove many customizations from our People Soft environment. I manage a staff of nine systems analysts that are responsible for different HRMS modules. This requires a lot of guidance and direction on my part. I consider my role to be a great challenge, but also very rewarding.

I attend the Alliance Conference every year both as an attendee/presenter and a current PSUG Board member.  This has been an invaluable experience for utilizing PeopleSoft and our SaaS products optimally. It is a great networking opportunity for other users throughout PSUG and HEUG.

I am a member of the PSUG board to assist other entities through our own success and failures and gain from others’ knowledge. It is always a challenge to locate information or research issues related to Oracle products. With my diverse knowledge of HCM and SaaS products.  I have found great information from the online community and enjoy sharing and increasing awareness of PSUG and it’s valuable members.
