I spent 31 years with the DuPont Company and worked in a variety of businesses including crop protection chemicals, food processing, non-wovens and medical products fields. I have been a Master Black Belt since 1999. As a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt it has been my privilege to train and certify hundreds of Green, Black and Master Black Belts globally. I have coached trainees through the successful completion of projects in areas as diverse as manufacturing, marketing, sales, finance, R&D and customer service.
