Director, Marketing Operations for 20 years

Cisco Systems

Summer Project
"I was able to work with teachers in my organization for two different projects. The first was to assist in Engineering Operations to draw headcount and budget reports and the second was to research product growth in the financial sector."

"The first year I was a Project Leader with a teacher because I was assigned this task by my supervisor. However, that experience completely changed my thinking on the value of the Ignited partnership and how bringing teachers to Cisco is valuable for us. The math teachers I’ve worked with have brought great analytical skills and are great at understanding or honing business operations skills."

“Cisco strongly believes in community outreach programs and giving back, and having a pool of teachers that can learn technology and be able to work on Summer Projects has worked out great.”
