I love teaching. I believe teaching is a natural tendency for anyone who loves to learn. I read constantly. I love to learn new things and figure out the interconnectedness of all things; then share with anyone who will listen. I’ve taught workshops and been a guest speaker for the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and local colleges/universities.
I have 20+ years of engineering/program management/writing experience. Most recently I was the Program Management Office Leader at Ingersoll Rand, Material Handling Business Unit. Previously I was a Program Manager for B/E Aerospace, Advanced Lavatories & Cabin Interiors division and was one of a four Sr. Project Managers in the Customer Service – Airports Division of Alaska Airlines. I have worked as a test engineer and process engineer for 3M and Motorola respectively. I maintain the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
I am a Michigan State University alum – GO GREEN! I’ve earned my Bachelor and Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from there. I also started the PhD, but dropped out eventually. While in grad school, I worked with my younger brother in church and lead a campus bible study.
