I am a Project Consultant and a retired Sustainment Systems Engineer with both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degree in Operations Research-Statistics, a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics/Statistics and 20+ years of experience with General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin.
I am a firm proponent of continuous education, believing it to be necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my colleagues. I volunteer extensively and have tutored adult students in both qualitative and quantitative fundraising techniques. I have and will continue to leverage my: (1) Consulting, Lean Six Sigma and Black Belt (Analytical Continuous Improvement) training and experience and (2) extensive project management experience designing, improving, and implementing integrated systems of people, materials, and equipment to help my students develop an appreciation for mathematics and its application in everyday life. I will use my well-developed analysis and skills performing data modeling, simulation, and analysis to teach and enhance my students' organization and critical thinking skills. For example, I successfully managed integrated teams using my leadership skills to expedite the design, development, and delivery of an aircraft hardware modification to the U.S. Air Force 3 years ahead of schedule and $1.2 Million under budget.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and swimming that both enrich my health and fitness and playing sports simulation games to generate statistics that I love to evaluate.
