I am a purpose-driven, seasoned manufacturing specialist who enjoys maximizing team performance and results. My professional background is in FDA regulated, high-volume, manufacturing environments. I have successfully led small, medium, and large teams.

Taking the time to build a solid relationship with each client and fully understanding their needs is essential. Identifying and implementing comprehensive and customized solutions based on my client’s specific needs is extremely fulfilling to me.

In June 2024, I graduated from NIST MEP’s Tab Wilkins Emerging Leader Program, which is a one-year commitment, typically for senior MEP Center staff, to work on projects to identify, understand, and unravel solutions to challenges facing manufacturers. MEP Acting Director, Nagesh Rao, provided closing remarks and signed graduation certificates with a pen once owned by Gen. Colin Powell.

My core values are perfectly aligned with the SCMEP’s core values:

  • Do what is right (with honesty and integrity)
  • Successfully finish what we start (on schedule and exceed expectations)
  • Work together in an entrepreneurial spirit (in partnership as a team)
  • Show respect and care (from the board room to the shop floor)
