Recent Activity  -


I thrive in an environment that requires a juggler who’s adept at solving problems. My attention to process and detail has substantially improved quality and productivity for my teams and divisions. I am passionate about growing our workforce from within and am a skilled instructional designer and trainer. My military background enables me to evaluate, advise and train any organizational need.
