My background is in Quality and Continuous Improvement since 1990. I've been a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt through the American Society for Quality (ASQ) since 2002, and a Certified Quality Engineer, also 2002. Both certifications have been active since that time, requiring recertification every three years, so I stay current in the discipline. I am a Certified Lean Leader from the Rochester Institute of Technology Center for Excellence Learning (CELE) since 2005. I taught a grant program for the largest community college system in the United States for a duration period of 2.5 years, personally delivering training to over 2,000 people in a variety of industries, as well as students. I developed the curriculum for this program based on ASQ's Body of Knowledge. I have a passion for empowering people with the knowledge of continuous improvement.
