“Beyond my career, I knew that I could make a much bigger impact on the profession of manufacturing by being on the Board of Directors of SME, so I ran for a position back in 2011.  Being elected to the Board of SME has provided greater education and opportunity to be involved in manufacturing beyond my own job and career.  Being a manufacturing professional allows me to contribute to making the world a better place for all.”
