Professional Summary
I help my clients deliver more successful, collaborative, and impactful projects!

With over 15 years in leadership and supervisory roles, I bring practical experience and expertise to project and planning consulting.

My career path led me from corporate positions in marketing and accounting departments to climbing the ladder in library and technology roles in higher education, earning graduate degrees in library and information science and technology management along the way. My track record of leading innovative and successful projects led to Project Management Professional (PMP) and Disciplined Agile Scrum Master (DASM) certifications. And my volunteer work with professional associations allowed me to develop a deeper understanding of the strategies that best support leadership and team development.

Regardless of the role or organization, my best days have been those when I was able to help a team or colleague grow and succeed: when I coached a new manager through a challenging project, brainstormed solutions with a colleague facing a management problem, or helped a team reach consensus and move toward a productive outcome.

My passion for project management and leadership development led to the formation of Yazdani Consulting and Facilitation.

At Yazdani Consulting and Facilitation, we help leaders and managers in mission-driven organizations bring clarity, order, and impact to their projects, teams, and planning.
