MES Administrator

I’ve spent over 20 years in raw material to finished goods manufacturing.  Most of those years were in Manufacturing Engineering. I started as a Bill of Materials Coordinator at SIGMADESIGN but was offered a new role supporting the client’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Software.  In this role, my skill at looking at a manufacturing process and turning it into routes and configurations helped propel the project forward.  I enjoy making things easier for my downstream customers and end-users of the products that I support.

BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT SIGMADESIGN: The best thing has been the flexibility of where I can work from.  The hybrid work opportunity has been great.

FIRST JOB: My first paying job was as a dishwasher at a local cafe in Stevenson, WA.  My parents later bought the cafe and I started having to work in exchange for burgers.

FAVORITE LEISURE ACTIVITY: I spend a lot of my leisure time volunteering for the local fire department where I live.  I am also an Elected Hospital District Commissioner for Skamania County.  I get to affect a lot of lives in those two positions.  If I’m not doing work for those two organizations, I enjoy driving around in the forest and finding roads that I have not travelled down yet.  I then see where they lead.

FAVORITE FOOD: Taco Truck Quessabirria Tacos.  I also like a nice, medium rare, ribeye steak.

FAVORITE MOVIE: Hellfighters.  I’m not a huge John Wayne fan, but I can watch this John Wayne movie over and over and it never gets old.
