Biographical Sketch

Director, School of Construction Management at the University of Louisiana at Monroe

who is implementing a transformation plan with the assistance of the Industry Advisory Council (IAC) and the ULM community.

Dynamic construction process and performance improvement leader, trainer and professor with extensive construction supervision and construction project management experience in planning, scheduling, cost control, cost estimating, and construction supervision.

Adept visionary leader who crafted the plan, collaborated with all constituents to build alignment, and executed the strategic plan that resulted in a substantial increase in revenue to the construction management department.

Competently balanced my strong analytical skills with equally strong interpersonal skills and tactical leadership, which allows me to build consensus, mentor talent, develop future leaders, and initiate new programs and processes that empowers teams.
