BIO:  A little about Derek Franke : Derek received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from DePaul University and completed an internship for WGN News in 2013. He entered the workforce as a multimedia journalist for KHQA News after college. Derek covered a variety of topics: we’re talking everything from house fires to dog shows. He returned to DePaul University to pursue a Business Information Technology master’s degree in 2014. The curriculum exposed him to project and information security management. Derek wrote a project proposal and plan for his own travel system, examined the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), and studied the systems development life cycle (SDLC). He savored reading and hearing about the processes to implement agile and waterfall methodologies. Derek completed the program in June 2017. This journey helped Derek acquire several skills and taught him a lot about himself: He works well in fast-paced environments and enjoys stepping into unfamiliar territory. Derek relishes public speaking and always tries to do as much research as possible to prepare for questions. Derek is excited to join Lynn Hazan & Associates as an intern and to absorb all the knowledge Lynn has to offer.
