With three young children, my family has a lively schedule filled with soccer games, football games, or even hitting the slopes in the winter. When I can find a couple hours to myself, I enjoy playing golf or escaping to a fitness class.

I am the firm's supply chain and operations practice leader. I help my clients develop and execute supply chain strategies that improve their operational efficiency and boost profitability in today’s competitive environment. My clients range from the middle market to global, billion-dollar corporations that are public and privately owned. Whether I’m assisting clients in the manufacturing & distribution, consumer goods, or medical device industry, I think it’s critical to evaluate both internal operations and the extended supply chain. They go hand in hand.

What sets our group apart is our hands-on approach. Clients appreciate that we deliver more than a PowerPoint report of their operations; instead, we roll up our sleeves and partner with them to execute pragmatic, yet sustainable, solutions that reduce costs, improve profits, and optimize quality and customer service across the entire supply chain.

Recently, I spent a couple of years dedicated to one client where I oversaw a rotating team of 20-40 members. At the time, it was the firm’s largest engagement. Not only did that assignment give me the opportunity to grow and develop staff, which is something I’m passionate about, but it also gave me the satisfaction of driving a client’s transformation. I’m proud that our team grew in its own ability to work together and, in the process, helped a client achieve a tremendous amount of success.

As an active member of the Plante Moran Women in Leadership group, I’m looked to as a mentor and coach by young staff throughout the firm. It’s important to me that everyone has the chance to succeed and be excited about the challenges the firm has to offer.

I received my bachelor’s degree in supply chain management from Michigan State University and my M.B.A. from the University of Michigan.
