Certifications & Recognition
During the course of my career I've participated on steering committees, obtained certifications, and received recognition that reflects my eagerness to learn new skills, meet new people, and continuously add value to my company and the professional ecosystems in which I work.
Founding Member - Human Capital Institute Standards Committee
As a leader of a company providing Managed Services and a Saas-based Vendor Management System, I was asked by the Human Capital Institute (HCI) to join a team of fellow practitioners to develop a comprehensive and objective set of best practices.
Six Sigma Yellow Belt
While at Volt Information Sciences, the parent company of Volt Consulting Group and ProcureStaff, I completed training and certification as a Six Sigma Green belt, Executive Champion, and Yellow Belt.
Duty of Care Award
While at Brightfield I was voted by my colleagues as the inaugural recipient of the Duty of Care Award. Duty of Care was one of the company's four firm values, described this way: "Brightfielders are wired for care - for one another, for customers, for the business, for the domain, and for the concerns, great and small, of our time. They are defined not just by their devotion but also their action."
Staffing Industry Analyst's formal certification for professionals working in the Contingent Workforce ecosystem.
Certified Contingent Workforce Professional
Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine "Pro to Know"
Recognized for work I led at Price Waterhouse to radically streamline the Procurement processes at the Department of Veterans Affairs and better leverage purchasing power across previously siloed buying functions. The agency saved $22.5 million in the first three years alone.
Although it was many years ago, I'm still very proud of this recognition from my brothers at the Iota Zeta chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha. It was my year as president of the chapter that I first realized I had the potential to be an effective leader, and that I enjoyed leading. I received the award my senior year for contributions made to the chapter, including leadership, fundraising, and campus ambassadorship.
