About

My interests encompass a variety of disciplines within the technology space, project management, and leadership.

I am the author of Suddenly a Caregiver, which shares my family’s caregiving experience and lessons learned to hep other through the responsibility of becoming a family caregiver.

My interest in technology began at a young age and led me to work in electronics. I received my electronics training while in the U.S. Army, where I attended the Precision Electronics Course at Lowry Air Force Base in Colorado. I served in Germany for three years calibrating and repairing measurement and test equipment. Upon my separation from the military, I transitioned to Motorola serving in the same capacity for about nine years. I supported a large manufacturing facility and managed the calibration and repair of about 80 manufacturing test systems. During that period, I also learned to write software and developed numerous automated calibration software packages.

I moved to an engineering group to develop software for automated manufacturing test systems in 1994. I was inducted into the Motorola Scientific and Technical Society for my contributions to reusable test libraries and the development of a standardized test executive for all test systems. Those contributions resulted in the reduction of the development cycle from a typical 18 month effort to 6 months.

I am the IT business service owner for my company’s R&D software engineering cluster, which encompasses 60 services and over 2,000 tools and applications.
