I’ve been a competitive athlete since I was 9 yrs old; starting with slalom racing, then rugby and climbing. World Cup ice climbing competitions have taken me around the world with a community of international athletes exploring cultures and climbing areas.
I currently work full time as a Strategic Project Manager for a manufacturing company. I have a BS in Applied Science and Technology (Engineering, Chemistry, & Business), a minor of Literary and Cultural Studies, and masters work is Quality, Operational Improvement, and Polymer Chemistry. Most of my career I have been a Quality Manager for manufacturing companies. One of my interests has been understanding the cultural links to manufacturing quality across Asia.
