Technical Director for Operations, NEMA
As Technical Director for Operations at NEMA, I'm responsible for managing and overseeing all NEMA codes and Standards activities, and there are many of them!
When I started in Standards in 2000, I could not have predicted the career that I was beginning, and I'm so thankful to have had the opportunities that I've had through the years. I've come to realize that Standards are essential, from keeping us safe to ensuring that our products can communicate to providing consistency in measurement—without Standards, the world would be a much different place!
I'm one of the few boomerang employees at NEMA. I worked for the association from 2011 to 2017. I wanted to come back to NEMA because its mission is so essential, and the technical work that we do is critical. Standards development is currently at a crossroads between how we've always done things (based on paper) and how we can do things in the future. I'm excited to help lead NEMA through this transition and hopefully make our processes more logical and efficient along the way.
