For thirteen plus years, I have worked at architecture and construction firms drawing on my training in design and construction, strong project management skills and natural gift of working well with people and getting the best from them while always satisfying the most demanding of clients. Involved in many quality driven multi-use projects, I have consistently achieved or exceeded the high standards required or made a major contribution in the areas of design or new business development.

As part of several international projects, I successfully supervised interdisciplinary, cross-cultural teams, always maintaining attention to client/owner requests, crucial deadlines, budget requirements and quality of deliverables. Most recent experience was Retail Environments Project Manager in charge of deploying field services for the design and installation of all Apple, Inc. retail stores across Mexico.
