Career has included process improvement, process engineering, change management and team development in financial services and IT departments of Fortune 500 companies. I'm also a animal lover, a gardener (aka playing in the dirt) and a musician. Hometown is Hamburg, NY, a suburb of Buffalo, big time football fan (Go Bills!) and Little League World Series fan. Have lived in Louisiana (loved the Cajun food) and Colorado (miss the mountains!) and ended up in PA where my parents' ancestors have been a part of the state's history since the early 1800's. Faith, family, friends and furry faces are what keep me going during the tough times.
