Vice President and Regional Manager

With more than 20 years of experience at MR, I can truly say that I love my work. My primary responsibilities include support of all work and customers in a region encompassing Tennessee, Alabama and north-western Georgia.  My support of the region consists of managing a team of Field Service Technicians, Application Engineers, and Project Resources responsible for estimating, bidding, design, implementation, and startup of project and service work, including long term customer support.

Fun Facts

When not working hard at MR, I am a huge fan of international travel. I also, as nerdy as it may seem, am a big manned-space history buff—go ahead, ask me anything!
