Experience: I’ve been with GE Healthcare for 15 years in a variety of roles from a manufacturing engineer, to a site & national Lean Leader to a multi-state field service director. These roles have including manufacturing, service & commercial elements to them and always included a primary focus on healthcare. Additionally, I have worked within the aviation, energy & financial industries through cross-business projects. With my experience, I was recently called on by GE to help during the COVID-19 response to drive increased output, improved quality & to build a supportive culture in our ventilator manufacturing business. Additionally, I have used this knowledge to start an education & consulting group focused on Lean methodologies called ripple Solutions LLC. My small business has allowed me to expand outside of healthcare & connect with the printing, distribution, university & non-healthcare manufacturing industries.
Education: I have a degree in Industrial Engineering with additional courses in Medical Sciences from University of Michigan, class of 2007. I am a GE Healthcare Operations Management Leadership Program graduate, I’m a certified Black Belt in DMAIC Lean Six Sigma and I’m Green Belt certified in DFSS Six Sigma. I have also received extensive GE Healthcare & Shingijtsu Lean training.
