Writing GM's Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions reporting policy and process. I also conduct GM's GHG analysis and reporting for all global facilities and for US products. I am responsible for GM's Technology Education program with the Department of Energy's Science Bowl Programs. I manage GM's Atlantic Rainforest project in Brazil with The Nature Conservancy. I am the President of a private medical and engineering forensic consulting firm called Med:For, Inc. I have recently been name vice president of the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM): the professional society representing my educational background. I am the third woman to be named to become president of SEM. There are many other things that I am involved in and I am happy to share my CV.
An engineering degree opens all doors to employment â€¦across almost every disciplineâ€¦why, because a degree in engineering conveys to the employer that you are able to solve problems.
GM Research and Development Center (1993). I was asked to create a Satellite Laboratory Network for GM so we (GM) could canvas the globe and find technical expertise to supplement our R&D portfolio of projects. I called this insourcing intellectual equity. GM's Satellite Network is fully operational across the globe and is enabled by the Master Agreement that I wrote in 1995.
Research in the area of mechanics where I learned that I am a unique experimentalist: Optical Methods with Prof. Gary Cloud and Composite Structures with Prof. Dahsin Liu. As I reflect, I realize it is the people that cross our paths through life that are responsible for leaving lasting, very positive, impressions.
Hopefully I am creating a new awareness in what is possible in managing GHG emissions such that the global climate issue over the near-term is no longer an issueâ€¦and I help people solve problems by first approaching the issue with what is possible rather than what is probable.
Innate interest in solving problems and understanding why things in nature occur as they do (physics major)
