Welcome!  Willkommen!  Bienvenue!  

I am Sonja Streuber, a Project Management Professional (PMP®), Six Sigma Black Belt, Systems Engineer, and former Literature/ Humanities college teacher with 15 years of success in program and project management, risk management, and red-to-green recovery across various industries, from telecommunications to aerospace/ defense, utilities IT, and construction. I currently manage capital construction projects at NIPSCO, a subsidiary of NiSource, Northwest Indiana's premier energy provider, through Alliance Technologies and teach courses in Database Management, Data Mining, Project Management, Six Sigma, and Healthcare Information Management for the Graduate School at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN.  Please look me up on LinkedIn!

My favorite quote is "Those who say it can't be done are usually interrupted by the people doing it."  My pet peeves are indecisiveness, waste, personal agendas, and incorrect grammar. Meyers-Briggs has me pegged as ENTJ, which puts me in the same league as Margaret Thatcher and Jean-Luc Picard. I speak English, German, French, and some Italian and Spanish--and am obviously a fan of the Oxford comma.

If you have any questions, please contact me via email, phone, or Skype (verbalicon).  I look forward to hearing from you!
