KEY ISSUE:

COMMENTS: As Senior Program Manager for General Electric's Nuclear Training services, I managed a multi-million dollar business. I maintained the budget, controlled costs, and drove new product development and sales, and managed the dismantling of this business venture when the business climate changed.

As Training Support Manager at Exelon's Cordova Nuclear Power Plant, I gained experience in office management, information technology, and federal and industry regulatory issues. I provided a leadership role on numerous and diverse teams to standardize processes across the company and to research and resolve issues.
