As Affiliate Relations Manager, I work closely with the IMEC leadership team and staff to develop strategic alliances and identify key partner resources that can help support IMEC’s mission and operations. These alliances and resources can be used to expand IMEC’s outreach to targeted industry sectors, enhance IMEC’s relationships with organizations involved in economic development, and organizations with financial and other resources to support IMEC’s operations. I also assist IMEC staff in identifying and utilizing available resources to assist companies in becoming more productive and globally competitive.

I have extensive experience in workforce development in both the university and public sectors. Prior to joining IMEC, I led business development and workforce initiative efforts for two organizations specializing in assisting small and medium-sized manufacturers grow and prosper. I also directed the career planning and placement offices at two major universities in Chicago.

I have experience in bringing key programs and people together for the benefit of manufacturers seeking ways to expand, broaden and strengthen their businesses. I can deliver and implement initiatives to strengthen the relationship between manufacturers’ workforce and fiscal needs and Federal and State programs and agencies.
