  1. How long have you been a BAMA member? I have been a Member of BAMA since April 2021.

  2. What do you like most about being a BAMA member? Being a member of Bay Area Manufacturers Association has been a rewarding experience as I have learned so much about local manufactures by participating in events, meeting manufacturers directly, and going on tours.  I have a passion for manufacturing since I grew up in a General Motors family in Flint, Michigan and would tour the plant assembly line and see the robots in action making the cars when I was a child.

  5. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? The best piece of professional advice I have ever received was from a mentor who told me that “you don’t have to know everything to be successful, you just have to use your resources”. The best piece of personal advice was from my late mother who said “this too shall pass, don’t give up”.
  6. What is the most important skill you have developed in your career? The most important skill I’ve developed in my career is patience and how to be a good listener.
  7. What are your hobbies or interests? My hobbies include spending time with family and friends, Orange Theory Fitness and going to the beach! It’s my goal to visit every beach in Florida someday!
