View Linkedin profile.

Our Global Supply Chain is amazing, products and services move virtually non-stop from one side of the planet to the other. Purchasing, transport, warehousing, manufacturing, delivery, etc. are all choreographed in a harmonized system to serve customers just when they need it. My interest in the Supply Chain Management discipline exists because the system is less than perfect. Analyzing and solving problems for complex global supply systems fascinates me. My unique outlook is to create solutions using a practical sustainable business approach. It is also important for me to pursue my other passion which is to share and exchange information. I have been doing this through my teaching opportunities. My goal is two parts; impart enough information to my students so that they have valuable unique skills and insight that employers see as vital for solving their supply chain problems. The second is to help students see the discipline as I do, a complex symphony with many movements occurring at once and the beauty that surrounds it.

Summary of Academic and Professional Qualifications:
I have been working at Miami Dade College as Assistant Professor since August 2015. I am lead faculty for the Bachelor of Supply Chain Management Program. I also have been working continuously as an Adjunct Instructor with American Public University System, teaching Reverse Logistics, since 2013. My professional experience exceeds 16 years in automotive and food retail, distribution/logistics and training. This includes twelve years’ experience managing reverse logistics centers. In three of these twelve years, I supervised 40 team members in a warehouse environment. Additionally, I held the positions of corporate operations manager for regional special-order distribution centers, and training content designer developing and facilitating store training programs.
