Traveling and Road Experience

Available for Domestic and International Travel

I have experience traveling across the country to many client sites. For one client, I traveled to Texas Monday morning and returned Thursday evening while working remotely on Friday for approximately 11 months. Also, while working for clients on the West Coast, I traveled on a bi-weekly schedule (on-site longer with travel there one week and return the following week). In summary, I am an experienced business traveler and road warrior. Many clients have also trusted and allowed me to work remotely by supplying me with equipment and remote access to work on their projects.

I have experience and attention to detail in working with a variety of consulting company rules, policies, and tools in regards to travel booking and expense reporting.

My suggestion is for the consulting firm to negotiate remote work arrangements where possible to reduce much unneeded on-site travel expenses to client projects.

Midwest and East Coast Travel

Usually I can get a direct flight or a shorter two-stop flight with a total 4-6 hour travel time day to/from the client site on a weekly basis but I may not be able to spend as much time on-site or billable on this arrangement versus a bi-weekly, longer-term, or remote work arrangement.

West Coast Travel

Flying to clients on the west coast usually calls for a full 6-10 hour travel day for me. My previous assignments did not require weekly commutes to west coast clients, but have arranged for bi-weekly or longer-term travel away from home arrangements.

Travel Schedule Options

Below I describe weekly and bi-weekly travel options that I have experienced in the past for clients that required frequent travel. Other travel schedule arrangements (including longer-term stays) will be considered.
