CEO, Cybersecurity & Compliance at Paragon Cyber Solutions, LLC
I joined the United States Navy right out of high school and proudly served my country.
Once I got out of the Navy, I worked my way up in the computer field working helpdesk, desktop support, system engineering, network engineering, and eventually cyber security, which I have specialized in for over a decade now. I worked as a Security Analyst, a Security Engineer, a Lead Security Assessor, a Cyber Security Subject Matter Expert, and most recently worked over three years as a Chief Security Officer (CSO) with an Executive role in growing a now multi-million dollar cyber security consulting company. I was the only female executive in the company!
After that CSO position I said goodbye to corporate and launched my own cyber security firm, Paragon Cyber Solutions, LLC. I haven’t looked back as becoming a full-time entrepreneur was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. As the Founder and CEO of Paragon Cyber Solutions, I impact positive change for companies helping them to protect their sensitive data from exposure and cyber-attacks. I also foster a workplace of learning and growth as my parent company, Paragon Cyber Solutions, has a formal Cyber security Apprenticeship program approved by the Florida Department of Education. My company, Paragon Cyber Solutions, is also an Authorized Delivery Partner with CompTIA and Pearson VUE Test Center. We provide security and workforce training to strengthen the cyber workforce, and I work directly with my staff to increase their Cyber IQ. I am a true advocate for knowledge transfer and helping people excel in their careers, no matter where they currently are.
