Lending a Hand:
With over 12 years of experience in manufacturing and Continuous Improvement implementation, my expertise lies in helping organizations become more efficient and more profitable. I begin the process by assessing the big picture and identifying gaps in both performance and practice. I work closely through all levels of the organization to understand and identify the gaps, develop the right tools and plans to reduce and/or eliminate the gaps, and establish the necessary mind set to sustain the improvements.
I enjoy seeing an organization implement this approach because it benefits the organization as a whole; employees, stakeholders, customers and suppliers. Seeing the manufacturer gain results based on the efforts we all set forth is an extremely rewarding process.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology from Western Illinois University and an M.B.A. from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. My education has given me a great base for my career as I have held positions in manufacturing that range from a Lean Manufacturing Coordinator to Continuous Improvement Manager.
