A little about me.

After graduating from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, I went to work for Cone Denim, an Elevate Textiles Company, as a Research and Development Textile Chemist and Lean Six Sigma Plant Facilitator hosting over 25 cross functional Kaizen events in their pilot White Oak facility. Following my second year with the company, I was offered the opportunity to expatriate to the company’s facility in Parras de la Fuente, Mexico to become the Technologist, Finishing Department Production Manager, & Lean Six Sigma Department Leader.

In 2018, we moved to the Los Angeles area and launched Lean on Sigma, a California limited liability company, offering services as a global Lean Six Sigma consultant.

A passion for knowledge and improvement drives me.

My mission is to create and inspire change in the way we approach and think of processes, to shift and pressure company culture to grow and adapt ā€“ creating stronger teams with better communication, to drive continuous and on-going improvement.
