In 2019, I retired from DTE Energy as a senior engineer following three decades of service. A lifelong problem-solver, I have always been drawn to innovation and expertise, and I am dedicated to pursuing a second career in respiratory safety equipment development. I also have several years of experience managing a construction company and designing and building homes from scratch. Time spent on job sites with construction contractors who struggled with face mask and respirator compliance along with my own inability to tolerate PPE is what inspired me to enter the respiratory safety market and create products that can better protect workers and individuals in all sectors of industry. My current areas of focus include research and development, prototype design and testing, and designing with safety, cost-effectiveness, sustainability and scalability in mind.
