Colleen has been a Monroe County employee since 2000. Since joining the county, Colleen has implemented the county’s first storage area network and disaster recovery site. She is also currently in the process of managing the upgrade of the county’s entire infrastructure in preparation for VOIP.
Colleen's biggest accomplishment to date has been the planning and implementation of the combination of IT services and resources between the Count of Monroe and the City of Monroe, Michigan. Due to economic factors, both the City of Monroe and County of Monroe were facing significant budget challenges.
Preliminary meetings resulted in discovering that many of the applications used at the City were also used at the County. This presented an opportunity to combine resources, infrastructure and technology.
