Manager of Economic and Business Development
WORKING WITH ME—THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW:
- It’s my mission to help West Virginia businesses grow and prosper. I bring resources to the table to help you succeed. Those resources could be economic development partners, potential suppliers or customers, or energy solutions to help your business be more cost competitive. I will use my connections to get you the support you need.
- Before joining our operating company, Appalachian Power, I served as a project director for a local economic development organization in West Virginia, overseeing business retention and expansion as well as recruitment of new industries. In this role, I secured more than $1 million in grants and fundraising to recruit businesses. I’ve also served in the West Virginia Department of Commerce as a manager for business retention and expansion for a 12-country region.
- I am a board member of the Polymer Alliance Zone, which has one of the highest concentrations of high technology, specialty and engineering polymers production in the world, and the West Virginia Economic Development Council. I am an alumnus of Leadership West Virginia and a member of the Southern Economic Development Council (SEDC).
