Results driven and enthusiastic Project Manager looking for a Project Manager position to enhance skills and build career. My experience is at a highly regulated Department of Energy (DOE) Battelle contracted National Laboratory in Idaho. The reason I am in the job market is because after living in Idaho Falls, ID for last 9 years, I have made a choice to move close to family. I have summarized my qualifications for your viewing.
- 9 years of experience as a Project Manager.
- Managed and supported cradle-to-grave projects that involve Energy and Energy Efficiency, Chemical Processing, and Material Characterization which include, but not limited to:
Solar For Schools -Manage, build, and operate an array of 6 170 watt PV modules at a local Idaho school. -Over a year, it will produce more than 1,000 kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy. -Project budget of $450K
Wind For Schools -Manage, build, and operate three 2.4kW Skystream wind turbines at local Idaho schools. -Project budget of $2.5 million over 3 years.
- Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from University of Arkansas in 2002.
- Masters in Chemical Engineering from University of Idaho in 2007.
