Technology Specialist

Walters Controls, Inc.

While working as a project manager at Walters Controls, I continued to expand my role as a project manager, continuously working to improve the tools available to other project managers in the company via application development and process streamlining.  The role of Technology Specialist was jointly created by Skipper Walters, the owner of Walters Controls, management, and myself on paper in mid-2011, with the position formally filled in Jan. 2012

Part of the shared vision of the "Technology Specialist" position focuses on how we, as a small controls contractor could navigate the future of the controls industry while having a clear handle on the internal technology and software that we use to conduct and grow our business.  It was clear that as we grew, we would need software solutions to empower the project managers to meet and exceed project goals.

University of South Alabama


With a diverse background that includes experience in e-commerce, information technology, programming, and HVAC controls project management, I am seeking to build a partnership with a forward-thinking controls company that is ready to grow their business.    


I am currently serving on a team of superior controls integrators as our Technology Specialist.  We are a Honeywell Elite Authorized Controls Integrator, 1 of only 10 receiving this honor in the United States.   As we grew, and to adapt to the changing and uncertain economic climate, it was obvious that we needed to streamline our operations and focus on empowering our team members with a coordinated approach.  

Currently, in my capacity as Technology Specialist,  my main responsibility is developing and implementing our overarching internal technology strategy while maintaining a light project management load.   The goal of this new direction and creation of our framework is to enable senior project managers to have a complete perspective of the project from all angles allowing them to continue to bring in excellent jobs.  Another benefit of the new framework and structure will be that new hires and junior project managers will significantly need less time "training up" to the senior project management levels, which can typically take up to 3 years in our industry.   This is a nice challenge, and I am excited to see the new levels of success that we will enjoy over the coming years.
