My Story

After High School, Anthony joined the Army Reserves and was awarded a Division I Tennis Scholarship. When the Gulf War began he entered the military on active duty where he was with the Third Infantry Regiment stationed in Washington DC.  While in the service he earned the covenant Tomb Guard Identification Badge and was awarded the Airborne badge, Air Assault Badge and Expert Infantry Badge.  After his four years of active duty he exited the military and worked for a small consulting company called Noblestar Systems, one of the original implementation partners with PeopleSoft.  While at Noblestar he completed his BS in Business Management and attended the University of Virginia where he completed their accounting program and sat for the CPA.  All this lead to kicking off his consulting career.

After working on several small and large scale PeopleSoft projects he became very skilled, not only functionally with PeopleSoft financials and HR suites, but also learning and honing his technical skills.  Anthony consulted for 14 plus years in PeopleSoft and attained certifications not just with PeopleSoft but also attaining an Oracle Fusion Middleware Certification.  He became director of PeopleSoft consulting for a firm out of Tampa Florida before joining the Workday Eco System with one of the original Workday Implementation Partners.
