I started in the HVAC industry after graduating from Education Dynamics institute in 1991. My first Job was in Death Valley of all places so I was inducted into the industry in a extreme way. My career took me to being Hotel engineer before moving on to being a HVAC contractor working in the Las Vegas heat. I spent 17 years in the industry  working on all  aspects of HVAC Refrigeration from small residential AC units to large industrial chillers and everything in between. I was approached in 2004 by Panda Express and made the decision at that time to join the PRG family. I help to create our SOP's to continuously move our Facilities department forward while managing the 120 new locations being built. I was promoted to a senior facilities manager in 2008 which created an opportunity for me to coach 5 Facilities managers. I was promoted again in 2012 to Director of Facilities where I was able to focus more on the big picture, creating the opportunity for me to focus on people while creating ways to add value for Panda. I have the technical knowledge in the industry through my continued education and factory training on most brands of ice machines and refrigeration MFG. Through my personal learning journey and my passion for people I am grateful to be in a position to help others continue their learning journey.
