In the movie Apollo 13, there’s a scene where all the available parts to build an emergency air filter to save the trapped astronauts are dumped on a table, and the engineers have to take only those pieces and create the solution. That’s me. I take what you have and make it work better.
I'm an operations and technology professional who thrives on the challenge of analyzing current systems and workflow processes and discovering inventive ways to streamline, repurpose, cut costs and bring in revenue.
I question the status quo to effect change. I'm adept at explaining complex technical matters with ease and simplicity to a nonspecialist audience.
I’ve guided company-wide conversions to a new integrated digital ecosystem and alternate means of delivering legacy products to a changing audience. My innovations at one company brought almost $9M in new revenue and resulted in at least $4M in cost reductions.
Known for bringing calm to chaos, I keep projects, team members and objectives organized and on track, driving operational efficiencies to achieve maximum results. Through training and development, I've created multiple agile and responsive teams based on trust and mutual respect.
My toolkit includes expertise in project planning and implementation, systems installation and training, contract negotiations, people management, budgeting, data analysis, employee & union / labor relations, logistics, facilities management, vendor selection and relationship management, bidding processes, technical documentation and corporate presentations and communications.
