Director At Large - Advisor
High Touch Technologies
I refer to myself often as the "Handler" at work because of the different roles I have been exposed to since my tenure. I have been with High Touch Technologies since 1995 and have come to appreciate working for an employee-owned organization. My role at the organization today is to offer the executive staff support in planning and implementation of corporate strategies. I take part in facilitating change management and strategic initiatives and have oversight of marketing and web functions within the organization. On a more personal note, in my spare time I enjoy spending time in my studio creating memories for family and friends.
