I support commercial volume licensing sales with particular emphasis on the needs and requirements of the legal industry, both law firm and corporate departments. I provide a range of legal support, education and information to Microsoft's internal teams in the Northeast and Great Lakes regions as well as guidance for the legal community. Prior to joining Microsoft I worked in various in-house legal roles for Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Ansys Inc. and Eaton Corporation.
I have over 13 years of legal experience, with the majority being in-house legal operations in support of Information Technology systems, implementation, procurement, support and licensing. My primary expertise includes negotiating a wide range of complex IT licensing agreements as a simulation software service provider as well as purchaser of software systems and services for the HealthCare and Electrical Manufacturer industries, including cloud services, on-premises licensing, business process outsourcing, professional/consulting services, HRIS systems and product support arrangements. In addition, I have legal experience in the areas of privacy, security, regulated industry requirements, employment law, training and development, marketing, finance, and procurement of shared services.
