I am a Marine, enlisted on my 18th birthday to “travel the world” and earn money for college. While in the marines I met the most beautiful girl (and fellow Marine) and quickly scooped her up! Christine and I have been happily married for over 25 years. We have two beautiful and well-accomplished daughters of whom we are proud. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a Mechanical Engineering degree, I started working for GE and am one of the few “company” men still around, GE being my only employer. During this time, I completed a Master’s degree in Systems Engineering and an MBA from Penn State University. My expertise is centered around GE’s commercial world – specifically go-to-market channel effectiveness and design. I have had a broad range of experience, from my starting point as a direct sales person, the incredible growth opportunity that I had from my time as General Manager for a small GE business in China, to my current role responsibilty for training and building competancy with the sales teams and business leadership teams around go-to-market performance. My passion is around enabling those around me to excel. I work hard to help my children, young people, my church, my school, my colleauges and my customers achieve their full potential. This is my lifelong goal: To use the gifts that God has given me to help myself, my family, my community, and my world.
I love God, my husband Tim, and our two daughters Carolyn and Rachel. I am a former Marine and a University of Virginia graduate (twice). I enjoy working in the learning and development field because it challenges me and allows me to positively impact others. My interests include living a healthy lifestyle, cooking and baking, reading, traveling, and volunteering.
A Buckeye for life, I will graduate from The Ohio State University this coming August with an English Major and accompanying Chinese Minor. I am spending the summer of 2014 in China, as a student of Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and will be pursuing different job possibilities that will enable me to return to Shanghai indefinitely in the fall. I recently completed and submitted my application to join the Peace Corps, which may be a wonderful experience for me come 2016. My passions include traveling, meeting new people and making the world a better place whenever I can. I wouldn’t be where I am without the support I have and continue to receive from those close to me, and I am thankful for all the blessings I receive on a daily basis.
I am a second year student at the Georgia State University Honors College. I am pursuing a BA in accounting and a BS in economics. The summer of 2014 I interned at GE Power & Water as a Business Finance Intern. I enjoy participating in a number of school activities including the GSU Research Committee, the Honors Ambassador Program, and the University Assistantship Program. I am blessed by God and the people who surround me and I am very thankful for all the blessings I receive. My family is supportive of everything I do, and they have helped me achieve so much. I hope I continue to learn and grow during this time of my life, and look forward to what the future holds!
