Responsibilities

My experience has allowed me to successfully lead facility start-ups, technology additions/transfers, and customer diversification efforts for multiple organizations.

Throughout my career, I’ve learned that every aspect of the business is interconnected.Β  When a change is made in one area, it has a ripple effect across the organization.Β  I’m here to help Illinois Manufacturing leaders anticipate and adapt to β€˜what’s next’ as their businesses evolve.

As the Partner Relations Manager, I work with the IMEC team to develop strategic alliances and identify key partner resources that can help support IMEC’s mission and operations. Together, we work with small and medium sized manufacturers to help them advance to Next Generation Manufacturing.
