With over 20 years of experience in R&D, new product and business development, I am a technology expert that thrives on catalyzing change and translating technical breakthroughs to business growth.

I work with researchers and leaders around the world to develop and promote forums for emerging markets like nanotechnology. For the seven years I’ve worked at TAPPI, I work with technical professionals to understand current trends, develop visions for projects, and create and implement strategic plans to get them there.

Please reach out if you are interested in engaging or learning about any of the following activities I am currently working on:

Cellulosic Nanomaterials – production, applications, standards development
Biochemicals from Woody Biomass – conversion technologies,
Standards Development – pulp and paper, nonwovens, packaging
Advancing Women Leaders – TAPPI has launched a new committee within PIMA to support women in the pulp and paper industry. Want to join? Please reach out!
