 I absolutely love the diversity of my technical work and the opportunities to support internal customers across Meijer.

After a 20-year career in consulting, I am most proud of the client service that I delivered to solve challenging technical and organizational issues.

What advice would you have for someone entering the field today?

Tackle the toughest technical subject matter that you can handle – become an expert.  Return to first principles to solve problems.  Most importantly, develop robust communication skills – write, write, write.

What are the three words your spouse/colleagues/best friends would use to describe you?

Hardworking, even-tempered, personable.

What aspect to the natural world/environment impresses you the most? Why?

In a recent trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, I was stunned by the breathtaking, natural beauty of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.  I was reminded of my career purpose in protecting our natural resources.
