My name is Alice Carpenter-Pierce (AC for short) and I've been able to find the sweet spot of technology and human systems. I leaned heavily on the tech side early in my career -- I have a B.S. in IT from Marymount University (in Arlington, VA), and my first job out of college was as a software developer. Since then I've expanded more into human-centered design and product management in my roles as a Project Lead on a Digital Transformation initiative.
I'm currently pursuing a masters in organization development and knowledge management (ODKM) from George Mason University -- Cohort 23, class of 2020. Even though the KM part initially attracted me to the program, I have been falling in love with the OD side more and more.
