Provide background information for GM550 students.


I worked for 3M Company for 30 years.  I started in the product development laboratories in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I found my passion in manufacturing.  I progressed from engineering responsibilities into production management.  I worked on products familiar to many people like Scotch® tape and Post-It® Notes. I am active in church and community.  I currently serve as treasurer on the Board of Directors of OASIS.  OASIS is a non-profit in Orland Park that serves the needs of people with visual impairments. 

My 3M career reinforced the importance of valuing people unconditionally.  I learned that two heads are indeed better than one in identifying better ways to get things done.  I enjoy the creativity that emerges from people enjoying what they do.  I operate with that environment in my classes. 

I have a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois in Champaign.  I received my Master of Business Administration from Keller in 1996.  My capstone professor at Keller encouraged me to pursue teaching after graduation.  I have taught at Keller for 16 years.  I enjoy the enthusiasm of my students.
