EDUCATION

SOUTHEAST HIGH SCHOOL, TECHNICAL DIPLOMA

Graduated spring of 1998 with a 3.2 G.P.A., while subsequently working part time with an assembly company that contracted out through retail chain stores to assemble their merchandise. To acquire a technical diploma I had to complete classes focused on science, math and technology. My freshman year a mid-term test was given in science and I was awarded an honor for achieving the highest score throughout the entire freshman class.

AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR QUALITY

October 2014 – Certified Quality Inspector

December 2014 – Certified Calibration Technician

COMMUNICATION

After six months with Trelleborg Sealing Solutions I was given the opportunity to learn the processes involved with testing polymer materials in accordance military and FAA specifications. With no previous experience in this area of manufacturing I was able to master set expectations with the help of an experienced lab technician. After a short period with little intervention from my direct supervisor I was able to build a 5S laboratory from the ground up at their facility in Massachusetts in addition to developing, writing, and aiding in the publication of the newest test procedures and equipment operating procedures. Lastly I developed a user friendly database to collect, record, and compare testing results for the quality department. This database shortened their first article and first piece inspection by one-third of their previous testing times.

Within the first four months of employment with Metso Automation I acquired my certificate as a Certified Quality Inspector through the American Society of Quality as well as becoming the first within the company to hold a certification as Certified Calibration Technician through ASQ. I am also currently studying for the certificate as Certified Quality Technician exam which I will take in October 2016.
