How has SMPS helped you in your career?  SMPS is my secret weapon. I have learned more from SMPS and fellow members than my formal education. I know that I can pick up the phone can call any member and they will help to the extent possible.

Can you offer a helpful hint for fellow SMPS members?  The biggest benefit of membership is your fellow members. If you get involved, then this resource will increase significantly.    

What do you love most about your job?  I don’t have a typical work day. When I became a consultant 12 years ago, it literally changed my life. I love working with people and solving problems.    

What’s the best career advice you have ever received?  Submit for Fellow. I was so intimidated by this process, and I had people tell me to submit I was ready, and I had people tell me not to submit because I wasn’t ready. I’m so glad I listed to the people who believed in me. When I made Fellow, it was huge!  That process made me look at my career and realize what I had accomplished.

How do you kick-back?  Golf

Where do you find inspiration?  Friends
