My career experiences has provided me with knowledge and skill in business operations, strategy and planning, manufacturing, product development and consulting. As a result, I have been effective in coaching new entrepreneurs through the startup process, and established business owners with their operational concerns.
I was the founder and president of Applied Technology and Science, Inc., created in 2001, a one person consulting practice specializing in solving production problems for manufacturing companies. In 2015, I retired and closed the business. Prior to this, I worked in management and senior engineering positions for Agere (opto-electronics), Visteon (automotive electronics) and IBM (computer electronics) in their manufacturing and development operations.
With my computer skills, I was able to help out in the Pottstown SCORE office to provide IT expertise for record keeping, marketing, and communications. I have also been at times responsible for the website and the workshop program.
