As Director of Process Improvement Services at Dean Dorton Ford, I help clients solve business problems through the use of various Performance Improvement methodologies such as Lean, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints. I have over 20 years experience in management and process improvement techniques and am a Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean manufacturing leader.
Prior to joining Dean Dorton Ford, I was Director of Business Integration at New Age Technologies, where I worked with clients on IT Business Alignment strategies and tactics by identifying and improving business and IT processes to make sure Technology is adding value to the process and obtaining a solid ROI.
As a Lean Sigma Master Black Belt at Jewish Hospital and St. Mary’s HealthCare I led Value Stream Analysis and Rapid Improvement Events in several areas, including Revenue Cycle, Home Health, IT, and Core Measures. In leading these events, I enabled the organization to eliminate waste, improve efficiencies, and enhance revenue.
I spent 14 years at Ford Motor Company where I held a variety of leadership positions in operations management, finance, engineering, and maintenance.
I have a Bachelor and Masters Degree from the Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville. I also serve on the Industrial Engineering Advisory Board at U of L, and recently was a member of GLI’s Technology Board of Directors.
