Biochemical Engineering, University of Southern California

I got my start in project management at a generics company. I joined PF as a Project Engineer where I continued to grow and develop my knowledge of the pharmaceutical and biotech industry by working in every department for facility start-up (Equipment Validation, Computer Systems Validation, Quality, Project Management, Operational Readiness, Project Management, Program Management). I love traveling and exploring new cities and places (at one point in my career I lived in each of the 4 continental US time zones for a year working for clients across the country). I have supported large organizations and small start-ups and I love the challenge of organizing cross-functional teams to deliver projects for our patients.

What excites you about being a mentor?
I love watching team members take on new challenges and grow. My favorite part at PF is our focus on leadership development. I love watching team members grow from taking on C&Q protocol drafting, to leading small workstreams, to leading small teams, and beyond.

What are you looking for in a mentee?
I am excited to meet with team members any where in their career who are looking for mentorship on how to reach their next career goals. Whether it’s how to advance technical knowledge, grow as a team leader, grow as a head/heart/guts leader, or grow in business development, I am excited to meet with you and hear about your goals and offer my input and experience to see you reach the next level.

Hobbies/Fun Facts:
I am a huge beach bum. Everything is better at the beach. All summer long (April to October in NC) my wife and I hit the beach every free weekend to catch some surf and sun
