I have served in leadership positions with the NPMA at National, Regional and Chapter levels. Previous positions include President, Executive Vice President, Eastern Region Vice President, and Chapter President. I have also chaired various committees and am currently serving as the National Director of the Special Interest Group Program. I earned my B.

My career has involved budgeting, cost accounting, capital accounting and all financial aspects involved with being the Property Manager at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for 21 years.

My mission as VP of Finance would be to provide exemplary fiscal responsibility through management and reporting of NPMA finances.
