Project Manager, Project Management Office

Baxter BioScience
* Assisted the Enterprise Project Management (EPM) multi-site team in the deployment and management of an Enterprise Project Management (EPM) system. Replaced system that did not provide the ability to prioritize / rank projects by strategic fit or assist in resource management. * Maintained and updated the LA Plant Project Management Office’s Website on a monthly basis. Greatly improved all projects’ visibility, which increased the efficiency of project / program decisions. * Facilitated all PMT and EPM meetings and captured meeting minutes (decisions, action items, next steps, and discussions), which were subsequently uploaded on the LA PMO Website. Improved project / program decisions by giving projects increased visibility and allowing transparent communications across projects.
2002 - 2007

Sr. Project Manager

Responsible for the implementation of numerous Process Development (PD) improvement projects. Most notably were PD's Electronic Document Management (EDM) for Teams which is a repository for all PD's draft and finalized documents and EDM for Quality, which is a electronic routing and e-signature application for PD's technical documents. * Deployed an e-workflow and e-signature document management system (DMS) for all of the Process Development (PD) Department technical documents, which increased efficiency (faster approvals) and decreased risk of lost documents. * Led a cross-functional team of 6 – 8 staff that successfully deployed DMS at 6 global sites by having weekly conference calls. * Migrated ~13,000 legacy technical documents to new electronic DMS, resulting in one repository, thereby improving document search effectiveness. * Co-authored the e-DMS business guidance document (SOP) and created training materials, which prepared PD staff for successful on-time launch.
1999 - 2002

Manufacturing Operations Manager

* Led three cross-functional operation product teams (Epogen®, Aranesp®, Procrit®) that oversaw multiple projects, resulting in zero defects for Epogen® and Procrit® and the successful launch of Aranesp® in US, Europe and Canada. * Interfaced regularly with Contract Manufacturing, Pharmaceutics, Marketing, Preclinical and Clinical Development, Regulatory Affairs and Quality, which resulted in greater collaboration and better cross-department communication to successfully launch Aranesp®.
