I joined the Plumbing and Steamfitters Local 166 Union and quickly progressed through apprenticeship, journeyman, and foreman. Performing installations, service calls, and startups of brand-new facilities and renovations alike.

I have held positions of Assistant Service Manager, Sales Manager, and currently Vice President of Mechanical & Refrigeration Division. With an Associate’s Degree of Applied Science from IVY tech I have earned multiple licenses and certifications through ICC, Pearson VUE, Garden City Ammonia Program, Untied Association.
