Will Relocate:



With over 25 years of experience in the design and construction world, I have been a Senior Project Manager for the Texas A&M University System since 1998. Highly focused and results oriented, I have managed over 50 design and construction projects on campuses across the state (partial listing follows). Now that both my children are off to college in other states, I am closing the gaps on my primary relationship and relocating to Clear Lake Shores (just south of Houston) and therefore will be leaving my position at TAMUS. With a stellar track record for producing quality design projects both in budget and within schedule, I believe that my skill set has much to offer a firm with high design standards and dynamic workflow requirements. Committed to excellence, quality and service, adapt at Construction Manager at Risk, Design-Build and Competitive Sealed Proposal Project Delivery methods, I have lead teams in a disciplined approach to successful project delivery on over $500 million dollars of construction. Regardless of the project delivery method, I encourage an integrated design process which strives to make critical design decisions at the beginning of the work, before key resource, budget and time commitments are made. Service oriented, very strong creative problem solving skills, adept at prioritizing critical tasks and juggling multiple projects simultaneously, decisive management & robust leadership skills are just a few of the assets I have to offer. Seasoned, intuitive leader who inspires high productivity from team members, I am very easy to work with and know how to handle difficult situations and personalities with finesse. Lets� face it, W O R K is a 4 letter word, and without pleasant interaction can be sheer drudgery. I employ humor in the mix, and if you check with my references you will find that not only do I have a thorough command of subject matter and management techniques, I�m just plain ole� fun to work with.
