A proven business leader with over 15 years of progressive experience in leading transformational initiatives. Unique ability to provide the thought leadership required to synthesize concepts and execute against strategic vision. Natural leader and mentor with a proven track record creating, curating and motivating high performing teams.
While I love being an entrepreneur, I also miss the dynamics and growth that comes from being part of a team. I have discovered that freelance, consultation and part-time remote work all help to satisfy this missing.
I am seeking remote opportunities with forward thinking, inclusive and authentic organizations. Ideally a part-time long-term, or, a full-time temporary position in addition to new consulting clients.

Sunni in a Nutshell
My brain just works differently than most. I am masterful at asking the ‘right’ question, seeing trends and creatively solving problems. I have an innate ability to take a seemingly complex problem, simplify and then motivating others to execute the solution. I see the whole world through a strategic project management lens, looking at things from both a macro and micro angle and, somehow (and this is the juicy part), I’m able to help other people see through this lens as well.
My previous managers say it best:
“Sunni’s insight, instinct, and attention to detail ideally position her to identify unique solutions to a variety of challenges.”
“She has a profoundly deep tool bag that includes an innate understanding of process, procedures and best practice delivery strategies to ensure projects arrive on time, in spec and on or below budget. Couple those skills with her common sense and charisma and you have a PM that easily qualifies as Best in Class.”
Because it’s 20187, we both know you’re going to Google or Bing me and see what you can learn. Allow me to kick-start your process (and hopefully giving you more time to focus on scheduling an interview with me!).
If you dig deep enough you’ll find my old blogs from the 90’s, thousands of travel pics and possibly even some interesting news mentions from my work with the JollyNinjas. What you won’t find is anything questionable, my background check is so clean it’s boring.
PS – Interesting fact. Every other VonMutius you encounter is a family member of mine! Unless you find someone who’s suspicious looking, in that case, I don’t know who that joker is 😉
