I am an adjunct at Northeastern focused on teaching courses in Leadership, Business and Communications. I am a doctoral candidate in the Law and Policy program at Northeastern, and conducting research on leadership.
Professionally, I am a senior manager at Philips Electronics. I was director of materials, managed purchasing teams and provided consulting services for companies in such diverse markets as high technology electronics, finance, medical instruments, food, automotive diagnostics, semiconductor and industrial equipment. I was fortunate to work with Dr. William Ladd at Ladd Medical and Research. Dr. Ladd was one of the inventors of the electron microscope and worked on the Manhattan project. I have traveled world-wide to Singapore and other international locations and was twice recognized as a key contributor for leadership and vision. I taught full time for two years at Northeastern University such courses as Global Supply Chain Management, Strategic Sourcing, Strategic Management, Negotiations, International Business and Organizational Behavior Leadership in the undergraduate program and Effective Leadership and Lean Operations Management for the High Tech MBA program at Northeastern University. I have written articles on purchasing and materials topics, and am a featured lecturer on leadership and global supply.
