Experienced individual who enjoys exploiting strengths and enjoys learning new skills and industries.
In my 15+ years of experience in manufacturing, I have worked in many different industries and environments, to include the military. From maintenance supervision to operations management, I’ve been able to impact my areas of responsibility through planning, sourcing equipment and materials, competitive bidding practices, and project management software and CAD usage.
Exceptional Team Leader
I'm able to communicate my thoughts and suggestions clearly and effectively to my team. I lead with enthusiasm and show respect toward all others. My team can easily rely on me for help or advice whenever they need to. I have directed daily production runs for various manufacturing operations. Additionally, I managed production staffing and materials for line operations that included supervising multiple union technicians operating high-speed robotic toothpaste filling equipment to hand-made premium spirits.
Creative Problem Solver
In my professional and personal lives, I'm very open minded to doing and learning new things. Hence, I'm always looking for creative new ways to be efficient in my work and to organize the work environment. For example, by being creative in sourcing equipment inexpensively, getting it rebuilt, and re-purposing people within department rather than laying off, we were able to save time and money. I also worked with a supplier to design a piece of equipment for a solid/liquid straining process that cut labor and improved safety.
