Project management concerns that are timely or interesting will also be discussed.

Wheaton holds a Master of Arts degree in theology and counseling, is certified by the Project Management Institute, holds a Scrum Master certification, and is a certified Facilitative Leader and Trainer. She has leadership experience in the retail, banking, education, technology, social service and health care fields.
