I have always been goal focused. My background of Cost Accounting and searching out the reason for a cost has aided me well in driving companies and leading individuals to success. In my career I have always focused on learning and studying, then training employees in what I know. I have always wanted an intelligent workforce, intelligent in the goals and the methods for achieving those goals. I have always worked, whether it be a Unionized Company or other wise, to find cause for a common desire among employees and management to want and to achieve a workplace that is focused on everyone being treated with respect for who they are and what they do. I have always been identified as a Leader who recognizes individual accomplishments and celebrates company achievements.
