Project Manager

University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center, Office of Design & Construction

UC San Francisco (UCSF) MedicalCenter, Office of Design & Construction - I’ve represented the University as a project manager in their hospitals, clinics, diagnostic and administrative spaces on Parnassus, Mt Zion, Mission Bay and Laurel Heights Campuses. I worked on the Academic or Campus side from 1996 through 2001 and with the Medical Center from 2001 until June 2009. Since 2001, I’ve managed over 80 projects of various scopes and budgets from $50K to $11M. I’ve controlled the budgets, schedules, contracts and purchasing for both the design and construction contractors for each project. A sample of the projects would include the installation of Gamma Knife Perfection Radiology Oncology equipment, the remodel of many outpatient clinics, such as Diabetes, Vascular Surgery, Chest Allergy and Hematology. I also created a state of the art Spine Center, reconfigured Mammography Reading and Screening spaces, which allowed the imaging and screening equipment to be updated from analog to digital. I managed as many as 12 projects at any given time, including smaller projects involving Plastic Surgery, Colorectal Surgery, Emergency Generator, along with many Radiology projects of various disciplines, budgets and durations. All projects included collaboration with OSHPD, JCAHO & SFM review/approval processes, while observing strict adherence to infection control procedures in 24/7 acute care settings. Typical project tasks included architect recruitment/selection, general contractor public bidding, working with our Contracts Group to award and execute design and construction contracts and manage all change orders, RFI, field orders, etc. I represented the University for Vendor relations, using their FMTrak business system to review and approve quotes, prepare requisitions for Purchasing to issue purchase order back to the vendor for ordering project related products.

Obtained a Congressional Appointment in my Senior year of High School to attend US Air Force Academy. I loved the Academy, but found the Military regimen a bit confining. Although I was on the Dean's List, Commandant's List and the Superintendent's List, I decided to leave after the end of my second year. I took the Fall of 1972 to work and apply to Virginia Tech, which I transferred to in Jan of 1973, graduating in June of 1974.
