Bio: I graduated in 2017 from Liberty University with an Industrial and Systems Engineering B.S. and worked as a project manager, reliability engineer, and quality engineer before entering the Postal Service. I have been fortunate enough to work at 8 different postal processing facilities in the two years since I joined. Some of my notable postal accomplishments include facility survey and design, leading kaizen and green belt projects, developing standard work, performing transport work analysis, line balancing, DAR development, implementation of national projects and initiatives, creation of complex VBA tools to assist in RPG creation and staffing models, as well as sign creation and LMP.
Bio: Graduated from Fordham University in 2001 with a BS in Communications. I started with Pitney Bowes in January 2003 in Fort Collins, Colorado. I took a promotion to an Associate Manager in 2006 and moved to south Florida where I worked out of the Miami office for 6 months before moving to a Field Sales Manager out of the West Palm Beach Office. I then transferred to and ran the Baltimore office where I first joined the GBPCC. I am currently a Federal Government Major Account Manager covering multiple federal agencies including the VA, DOL and DOC.
