I have more than 11 years of experience in manufacturing and management in a variety of industries. I was formerly Plant Manager of a metal roll forming company and worked within the auto parts and accessories industry to plan, organize, and lead teams in a Lean environment. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Professional Aeronautics from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida and am a certified Training Within Industry (TWI) Job Instructions and Job Relations Trainer and Coach.

A local manufacturer wanted help and guidance to develop and support their Lean journey. We started with addressing their safety program followed with Leadership training. We then taught them Lean tools. The resutls were an improved safety environment, the plant laid out in cells, and Pull Kanban being used. With my coaching, the manufacturer was able to proceed to the point of sustaining their Lean journey on their own.
