About Me

"Before the beginning of great brilliance, there must be chaos."
- my favorite fortune cookie message.

I love to figure things out, whether it's a word game, a puzzle, or a business quandry. I'm a problem solver by nature and enjoy making sense of mess and disorder. Just don't look at my desk...

I joined Jefferson Lab as the manager of the newly established Research and Technology Partnerships Office. In this new role, I will lead the technology transfer, industry engagement and partnership development efforts on behalf of the lab. I will work closely with our inventors to help ensure that the intellectual property they generate in support of the lab’s research mission receives the focus, support and outreach it needs to have its best chance of reaching the marketplace. I will also explore with our researchers additional partnership opportunities with federal and state agencies.
