Associate Principal, Technology Team Leader



I began my healthcare career in 1971 and have served in a variety of roles. I have managed and operated commercial clinical laboratories, managed joint-venture hospital laboratories, served as project manager and medical equipment planner for replacement hospitals, greenfield facilities, renovations and expansions covering all clinical disciplines. My project management experience includes clinical operational reviews, budgeting, medical equipment planning, procurement, transitioning, and coordination during construction. During this time, I also spent several years as a production manager for a manufacturing facility. This wide-ranging background enables me to take a comprehensive and analytical approach to medical equipment planning to better understand how each component impacts the operational objectives of the facility.

During design and planning, my focus is on clinical operations and budgeting. The ultimate success of a facility depends on these two pieces being aligned with each other, with the future plans for the facility, and with the ultimate project vision.

 

My Flipside

I first got involved with the A/E/C industry when I had to design and build my first clinical laboratory. Building an entire hospital had never occurred to me until I met Gene Burton—the founder of Gene Burton and Associates, now the Mazzetti+GBA Technology Region—at a convention. We had a long discussion about what the firm did and Mr. Burton invited me to give it a try. That was nearly 30 years ago, and I haven’t looked back.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading, writing, and photography. I constantly look at the world through a (literal and metaphorical) photographer’s lens. There are interesting things to see everywhere. You just have to keep your eyes open and pay attention.
