SMPS Chapter: SMPS Palmetto
I have been an active board member and programs committee chair for SMPS Palmetto for the last two years. During that time, we have increased program attendance significantly and helped start an affiliate of SMPS Palmetto in Greenville, SC.
Number of years in the A/E/C industries: 14+
How has SMPS helped you in your career?
SMPS has provided not only educational programs but opportunities to expand my professional network. I have made several beneficial, lasting relationships through the various SMPS programs and events through the years.
Helpful hint to share with your fellow SMPS members:
The CPSM community on MySMPS provides a lot of input on questions many of us have as professional services marketers, I’ve found the info to be very helpful in implementing various things internally with my company.
Tell us something we would be surprised to learn about you:
I grew up in the northeast playing hockey and continue to do so in South Carolina. (Yes, they have hockey in South Carolina!) I enjoy being outdoors, golfing, fishing or just relaxing at the beach.
What I did at work yesterday:
What didn’t I do?! I reviewed potential RFPs, worked on proposal deadlines, secured teaming arrangements for several pursuits, and worked on content for updating our website.
As a CPSM, how has certification benefitted you?
It has provided me with the tools and education to do a better job for my firm. It also helps position me as an expert in my field, not only among my peers but with my fellow co-workers on the technical side of the business.
