Today let's take a look at Terri Dickson, PMP, Program Manager, External Mandates & Compliance Implementation, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Owings Mills, MD.

A Project Management Professional since 2005, Terri has over 10 years of project management experience combined with 20+ years of experience in Information Technology, Health Care Insurance and Government contracts.
