Lenora Holmsten is an accomplished project manager with over 15 years experience, primarily for one of the top global insurance carriers in the world. She launched her career handling claims automation projects, and from there progressed to working in Human Resources on HR Initiatives. Followed that, she became part of her company’s North American Enterprise PMO, handling multi-million dollar global projects and programs; and developing and implementing best-in-class project management processes, practices and procedures. She carries with her a long track record of success in shepherding projects from inception to completion, and building successful project teams.
Lenora has a passion for continued life-long learning. She earned PMP credentials over 7 years ago while simultaneously earning her Masters in Project Management from the Keller Graduate School of Management (Devry University). As part of her passion for learning, Lenora enjoys teaching others and helping them develop in their careers as professional project managers. As she puts it, “It’s very rewarding seeing the light bulb go on in a student’s head, and see their sense of confidence when they grasp the concept we’re talking about.” She makes it her mission to teach project management concepts and new ideas in fun and memorable ways.
Passionate Project Management takes a holistic view of the project management professional who is obtaining their credential, and presents the material in a logical, real-world manner. “Too many training companies out there do not devote appropriate attention and support for the training participant,” says Lenora. “I’m proud to work with a company that does.”
Lenora relocated from Chicago to Phoenix two years ago, and has devoted much time to the local PMI Phoenix Chapter, holding various chapter leadership positions. She was recently elected President Elect for 2012, and will assume the President position in 2013. Lenora and her husband, Brian, are enjoying winters without snow and icy temperatures. She has two college-age children, Michelle and Sean, who attend colleges in the Midwest
