How I can help you
My expertise is in the areas of manufacturing, R D, product development, quality assurance, and operations in general. During my career I designed, built, and managed high tech manufacturing facilities. I also managed large R D and engineering organizations. I have experience in all areas of operations and R D, including strategic planning, product costing, lean manufacturing, product development, financial analysis, and human resources. I have been a SCORE mentor for eight years. Since joining SCORE, I have mentored clients through all phases in the life of their business, from feasibility to start-up to on-going operations. In my volunteer activities over the years I have worked with non-profits in developing strategic plans and managing their finances. I have served as president and treasurer of mid-sized non-profit boards. I currently provide assistance to non-profits in budgeting and financial management. I am fluent in Spanish and provide mentoring in Spanish. I also have international experience. I retired from Philip Morris International in Lausanne, Switzerland. I spent seven years in Switzerland, and my last position there was VP of Operations Technical Services.
