Key Accomplishments

As a Publisher, I authored and illustrated 3 paper books, 3 E-books, illustrated 2 other books, and published those books along with titles from 7 author/clients. I created and manage  my company’s website. I implemented 3 in store marketing campaigns with Barnes And Nobles where sales benefited schools and community service organizations.  

As a Project Manager, I managed  the decommission of my department's primary workplace database and  the implementation of it's replacement. This  IT implementation provided added increased functionality and more robust capabilities to 3 departments to perform our core work.  I managed the SCE Bark beetle Project which is  audited by the California Public Utilities Commission. In 2010 we recovered $16.8 Million dollars (100% of our expended costs).

As a Program Manager, I expanded the TA&TI program to allow for 15% more participants by streamlining the program's eligibility requirements. I also expanded the qualifications to include Auto Demand Response. This is a SCADA type system that allowed for commercial customers to qualify for the  TA&TI program. 

As a Project Analyst, I provided key analytical support to SCE for its  AMI project business case and CPUC mandated General Rate Cases from 2003 to 2008. I supported the SCE AMI business case which  saved $60M in annual O&M costs through the implementation of installing  SMART meters within the SCE service territory.
