During a rewarding economic development career working in the public sector, I strived to build strong relationships between business leaders, elected officials, and economic development stakeholders. Creating jobs and attracting investment were top performance indicators that I used to identify success. The manufacturing community, with its innovative culture and creative workforce, was my most valued partner and still is.

As one of the Partner Relations Managers for IMEC, I work with a group of professionals to overcome challenges and strengthen the Illinois economy. As a team, we possess a high level of manufacturing expertise, and we work with a variety of service providers to bring to market industry best practices, technical assistance, and business development resources.

Joining IMEC allows me to bring my expertise and passion for economic development to the state level. The unique IMEC business model is primed to accelerate business growth throughout Illinois.
