How I can help you

I am at my best self when enabling others in solving interesting and challenging problems.  The challenges faced by small businesses are no less than those faced by large conglomerates and that is what excites me motivates me and pushes me to give my 200% in every client interaction.  Lifelong learning is my other focus.  Over the past 5 years I have enjoyed interacting with SCORE and its clients and at the same time I have learned a lot myself.  Finally, volunteering as much time as I can to help others - individuals in need of coaching, organizations and non-profits with a vision to change the world for the better and simply giving my time whenever and wherever possible is very satisfying and fulfilling for me.

I worked in engineering management and business development for automotive, industrial, heavy truck and construction equipment industries for over 20 years before leaving the corporate world to start my own consulting firm.


I am the Partner and Co-founder of SN Group (CERTUS+).  SN group is a boutique consulting firm delivering productivity gains by enabling individual and organizational transformations for small to mid cap firms. The firm uses a generative approach and operates at the intersection of innovation & operations excellence; strategy & execution and organization learning/development & managment consulting.  We focus on competency development (1 on 1 coaching and workshops for engineering and project management professionals), consulting (digital marketing, project management, engineering), talent acquisition (engineers and project managers)

I have conducted social media workshops for SCORE clients; Was the Social Media Director (volunteer) for PMIGLC (Project Management Institute Great Lakes Chapter).  I am an Adjunct Faculty member at Lawrence Tech University, Michigan. I am also the lead coach for SAE Engineering Management Academy.
