Q: Tell us a little about your childhood. Where did you grow up? When and why did you move to Colorado?

Born in Michigan, moved to California at 1. Moved to Colorado in 2020. Had been looking since 1993, and should have moved here then.

Q: What is your favorite thing about manufacturing and/or working with manufacturers?

I love processes and how things are made. Watching factories move products from design to shipping has always intrigued me. Anytime I can tour a physical plant, I’m in! Of course, I will be the one that asks a thousand questions as I learn the process and see how / if it can be improved, based on my experience.

Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a doctor (until my first biology class as a freshman), changed to business/accounting, and then to sales/operations after getting my CPA certificate after graduating. Business is my happy place. Pretty much anything but accounting.

Q: What is one surprising fact about you that most people wouldn’t know?

Surprising fact: Almost died scuba diving after the perfect combination of events in Tahiti. And yes, I had more than 50 dives at the time.

Q: What are you most hoping to accomplish at ME in your first year as an RD?

As a new RD, my goal is to have as much positive impact on the companies that I touch. I want to get to a place where the majority of the opportunities that we serve are referrals because we knocked it out of the park for our clients. That is the ultimate compliment for me and Manufacturer’s Edge.

Q: What was the first concert you attended?

The first concert was Elton John at the Forum in Los Angeles. Most interesting was at the LA Coliseum where a new guy, Prince, opened for the Rolling Stones. He came out in 100-degree weather in a long leather jacket and the fans booed and tossed things at him. Little did we know.
