I serve as IMEC’s Operations Coordinator. This role allows me to take 20 years of manufacturing and consulting experience in various administrative and field roles to provide IMEC leadership and staff comprehensive approaches to serving Illinois manufacturers and stakeholders.

My primary responsibilities are to provide oversight of project proposal contracts with IMEC Regional Managers and Technical Specialists and develop working relationships with subcontracted delivery partners. I also coordinate resources for daily diverse solutions as needed.

I am part of IMEC’s marketing team that coordinates public and private educational opportunities. I use my field experience consulting on safety and health best practices to lead the annual Southern Illinois Occupational Safety & Health (SIOSH) Day conference.
