Speaker's Bio: 

Brett Sheffield, PMP, CSPO, SMC, SFC, LSSGB, CES, is a graduate of JMU with a BA in Political Science and Economics and the ECU School of Commercial and Real Estate Lending.  A PMI Central Virginia chapter member since 2010, he obtained his PMP certification in 2011 and has been serving the chapter in various roles since 2015, most recently as Chapter President.  A former Commercial Loan Officer, he started his transition into project management with a simple ask to be a SME on a banking operations process improvement project.  There, he discovered his passion for process and project management using Lean Six Sigma methodologies, sparking his journey to obtain his PMP, Agile, and Lean certifications.   This background has enabled him to successfully lead projects both in the private and public sectors while working across the business spectrum, from Fortune 500 companies to non-profit startups.  One of his proudest accomplishments was obtaining his Certified Environmental Specialist and OSHA certifications to be the lead project manager for establishing a national corporate EH&S program for retail store environmental compliance and employee safety protocols.  

In his spare time, he enjoys reading history or can be found back home in the Blue Ridge mountains, enjoying the outdoors, usually at a JMU football game.
