Echo Woolf has been a project manager for 8 years working with private, public and government organizations. She has made a career for herself in project management, with her most recent accomplishment of getting her PMP. Deciding she wanted to challenge herself further, she co-founded Freelance Sidekick, LLC which provides project management services, consulting along with coaching for the PMP exam. Project management to this day remains her passion and is something she continues to invest in.
