From the start of my professional career over ten years ago, I have been striving to improve my abilities, skills, experience and education. I am continuously seeking opportunities to develop myself and my career through education, networking and good old fashioned hard work. The pursuit and completion of my M.B.A. is a true indicator of that willingness and desire. I would eventually like to pursue further certifications, such as the CPA, CPIM, CFA and/or CMA. Having said that, my education plays second to my willingness to roll up my sleeves and get dirty - to do whatever it takes to get a job done as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Professionally, I have spent the past two years performing in various challenging roles within Pentair Water Filtration. I decided to pursue the opportunity at Pentair as a means to enhance my skills and knowledge. I also wanted to gain further experience in both a manufacturing environment and in an operational role. I looked at the position as a challenge; something to take me out of my comfort zone. I spent the first year working as a Supply Chain and Materials Manager for our Hebron, KY distribution center. I was based out of Wisconsin and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Mexico. I worked on the closure of a production facility, movement of production lines and the establishment of a new warehouse facility. Upon a decision to maintain my residence in Ohio, I was offered the opportunity to be challenged in several positions within our Chardon production facility. I have worked on projects that involved developing a SIOP process, EPEI/Scheduling Wheel, updating and maintaining a PFEP as well as functioning as a buyer, planner and scheduler.
Throughout my career, I have taken on increasingly challenging positions and have served in many leadership roles. I have been able to develop a portfolio that is broad; have experience in many different industries and areas of business ranging from finance and accounting to marketing and sales and even to law and research. I have experience in performing functions such as reporting and analysis, process improvement, system implementations and project management.
I have strong career goals and am incredibly passionate and motivated to achieve these goals. I would enjoy being able to be an integral part of a team that makes a positive difference in an organization's culture and operations. I would also enjoy being able to continue to lead a highly motivated group of passionate team members. I have been fortunate enough in the past to function as a leader and would enjoy continuing in that leadership role. Being able to watch employees grow and develop their skills while acting as a mentor and leader is something that inspires me. Through hard work and dedication, I would like to become a C-Level executive as an ultimate career goal.
I am a confident, optimistic and energetic person. I am creative and love working with people. My core competencies include excellent communication skills, presentation skills, organizational skills, performing multiple projects simultaneously and I am effective at interfacing with various levels of management and outside interests. I have a high degree of discretion, professionalism, mature judgment and tact. Throughout my career, I have developed a proven ability to work independently as well as be a dynamic team player.
I am looking forward to the new challenges and career opportunities that will be facing me and am ready to become a valuable and contributing asset to a new organization.
