Hi.

Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by.

What I’ve Been Up To: I’m A Muthafkn PMP

What I’ve Been Up To: I’m A Muthafkn PMP

For the past 2-3 months I’ve pulled back on my social media to focus on a professional growth mission and I’m very excited to end the year with that mission accomplished.

I am now Danielle Aroh-Boone, PMP!

For those who don’t know, in my 9-5 life I’m an Operations Specialist & Project Manager for a major healthcare center’s Patient Care Logistics + Project Management Office. In short, my role is to lead and manage specialized projects (both clinical and non-clinical) designed to enhance patient experiences and best-practice in healthcare outcomes. My projects can range anywhere from establishing and tracking a 24/7 channel for Patient-Caregiver communication to organizing a game day to engage hospital staff.

So what is a Project Management Professional (PMP)®?

The PMP is the gold standard of project management certification. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PMP validates competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams.

In addition to educational requirements, permission to sit for the PMP Exam mandates:

  • 4,500 non-overlapping hours leading and directing projects

  • 35 hours of project management education

The brightest aspect of this certification is that government laws are beginning to require that certain-sized organizations have at least one PMP in operation at all times so I can’t hide how proud I am of my self for pushing through.

For anyone interested, you can click my digital badge here to view more about what this certification entails:

This is definitely different from my normal posts, but this blog is about my entire life and this is a huge part of it. I do get a lot of private messages asking me for details about what I do on a day to day basis so I hope my readers who are also on career journeys learned about something a tad different, especially those who are interested in the non-clinical side of healthcare.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! From a 70s Thanksgiving to Christmas in Montréal, you can catch up with all my family’s holiday season shenanigans on my Instagram. Until the next post…

Cheers!
