“A wise man once told me that the most costly phrase in industry is: ‘Because it’s always been done that way.”
Born and raised in Central Illinois, I take great pride in the ability to help manufacturers improve operational efficiencies. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work in a variety of industries and environments from plastics to electronics recycling, and pristine food shop floors to turn of the century steam powered forge shops. I’ve developed a strong background in quality, safety, and continuous improvement. My past roles range from sales, sourcing, and operations & maintenance under wide range of Quality Systems: ISO 9001, AS9100, and FSSC 22000.
I am passionate about consistently producing the best quality of service while always remaining positive, organized and ready to solve complex issues to improve performance. My diverse professional background grants me a unique perspective as to how quality systems impact all departments within a company. At IMEC, I get to use my expertise and leverage a multitude of resources to help Central Illinois manufacturers create and sustain a competitive advantage.
