Lee Mandley Volunteer of the Month: February 2020

Volunteer of the Month

Heather Sutton, PMP

Heather has been instrumental in the PMP Prep operations, social media, and sharing her personal experiences taking the exam for the betterment of the student experience. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty of a PMP Prep Coordinator by assuming the PMP Prep Administrator duties when that position became vacant. If that weren't enough Heather also stepped up as a PMP Instructor when an Instructor had to bow out of the PMP Prep Class after it underwent an emergency online transformation due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Heather Sutton is a passionate project manager with over 7 years of experience managing cross-functional projects and programs. After obtaining her PMP this January, Heather moved from the public sector to the non-profit sector. She currently works as a Project Specialist at the XPRIZE Foundation, a non-profit organization that uses large-scale global incentive competitions to crowdsource solutions to the world's grand challenges.

Heather has been a member of PMI-LA since 2008. She loves her community and looks forward to many many more opportunities to serve with other PMI members.  Her favorite pastime is spending time with her amazing husband. 

Great job and congratulations,  Heather!

About the Lee Mandley Volunteer of the Month Award:

Founding Director of the PMI-LA Alhambra Community Meeting located at DeVry, Lee was a Construction PM and a long time member of the chapter.  He was the voice and liaison for the San Gabriel Valley members east of Pasadena.  Lee was the first director to institute round table discussions on interesting Project Management Topics when a speaker had to cancel at the last moment.   Since 2012, we have presented the ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award to a key volunteer who exhibits the outstanding trait of working “outside-the-box” to ensure that chapter operations are running smoothly in their area.  This award was renamed later  that year to  honor Lee Mandley.
