There are many reasons why I wake up every day excited to go to work. The biggest reason is finding and promoting an economical ways to reduce energy, increase yield, and lower waste. I believe that when you can make the Green Solution the highest value solution it becomes just “The Solution”. After Graduating from UW-Madison, I took a job with GE Power in the special application divisions designing custom membrane skids for the process membranes. In 2007, I was pulled away by Tetra Pak to design and build dairy plants. In 2015, GE Power has given me the opportunity to use my food and dairy knowledge to further drive solutions for customers.
