1. What are you responsible for as a Project Manager at LMI?
|I manage and lead a team of 60 consultants supporting the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity and the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency. My team and I support medical device modernizations for the Army Field Hospitals. I am also the project lead on the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command Test Branch contract, leading a team of four test engineers who evaluate and administer environmental testing for medical products. I manage the contracts for each of these efforts, including performance of work scope, schedule, and cost management.|
2. How long have you been with LMI?
|I have been employed with LMI for one and a half years.|
3. Prior to LMI’s acquisition of The Tauri Group, what was your role?
|While at Tauri, I served in the same capacity and as a biomedical engineer to medical modernization.|
4. What made you decide you wanted to continue working for LMI after the acquisition of The Tauri Group?
|LMI’s focus on developing individual personnel was very appealing to me. I have spoken to directors who started at LMI in technical operations and became project leads and then directors. I am inspired by the opportunity to stay with LMI and participate in diverse work across multiple contracts, and I’ve been impressed with LMI’s industry-leading subject matter expertise across domains. I was also attracted to the knowledgeability and quality of senior leaders and research fellows who are supporting the Department of Defense.|
5. What synergies do you see between LMI and the way the Army operates?
|The Army excels at performing in an ever-changing world, and LMI is equally matched to support the Army’s mission. The Army is faced with complex challenges every day, and LMI has the knowledge and experience to provide solutions and support for these advanced issues.|
6. Who has been your most influential professional mentor?
|With such a top-notch leadership staff, it is hard to narrow it down. However, Nathan Sanders, LMI’s Director of DoD/VA Health Markets, and John David, a director at LMI, have been invaluable mentors as I’ve learned how to lead a major Department of Defense support contract.|
