I am an ambitious individual with a strong desire to continue professional growth by applying for this position. I will bring a strong technical background to help drive the right products and grow the business. Through my many projects and being an intermediary between technical and business units, I have obtained experience developing innovative formulations, analyzing competitor products, researching niche business opportunities, and evaluating their impact. I have the willingness and ability to learn and explore new areas of chemistry. I have skills to be a developmental chemist in industry and currently have 4 years of experience in a developmental lab. I obtained my degree in Forensic Science at Wichita State University. I have an additional 2 years of experience working in a quality control laboratory and collaborating with people at varying levels in the company to drive projects with high business potential. I am knowledgeable using software such as Microsoft® Excel, Power Point, Outlook, Minitab® 16 statistics, and AutoCAD®.

Currently, I am an associate product manager for Compass Minerals in the consumer and industrial deicing department and have supported multiple projects through the stage and gate process. I have collaborated with marketing, sales, logistics, and facility management to translate fundamental studies in the laboratory to commercially liable products that generated new business. Significant accomplishments include patent pending anticaking agents, a patent pending water care formulation, a patent pending bottle design, engineered bulk solids flow to improve shelf life, and the development of multiple competitive databases which provide sales with comparative technical data to sustain or capture new business.

I am a perfect fit for this position and will bring a technical and business understanding to the team. You can contact me by phone at 913-***-**** or by email at to discuss this opportunity.
