I have done many long term studies, using simulation, value models, and statistical techniques.
Currently, I'm an analyst for Marine Corps Programs and Resources Program Analysis & Evaluation Division.
I was the Marine Corps Deputy lead for the Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) for the Future Vertical Lift (FVL). I also led a study that informed changes to the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Combat Logistics Battalion (CLB) Table of Organization (T/O) and Table of Equipment (T/E), seeking quantitative indicators of consensus based on inputs from operating forces and historical data. I applied innovative techniques to model the Maritime Prepositioning Force (MPF) offload process. The model imported data from an Access database using VBA code to generate unique scenarios in Arena. This approach allowed our team to analyze offload shipping under a variety of conditions.
I have provided quick turnaround results for decision makers. I completed force sufficiency analyses for the Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) and Marine Medium Tiltroter (MV-22) aviation structure. I have also provided quick turnaround recommendations for effective Ground-Based Operational Surveillance System (G-BOSS) system placement on two major U.S. bases overseas. I employed STK to analyze sensor coverage at various locations, providing a qualitative and quantitative basis for operational decision-makers by validating the requests for additional assets and also informing deployed Marines of coverage gaps. The timely and informative findings resulted in requests to look at additional locations and sensors. I presented results to a Counter-IED working group and at the annual MORS Symposium in 2016.
Previously, I worked at SPAWAR where I developed architecture for the Marine Corps.
As an Operations Research Analyst at Northrop Grumman, I completed a wide variety of studies and analyses.
I served as chair for Working Group 28 at the 86th and 87th Symposium and am now advisor for the 88th.
I completed the Defense Civilian Emerging Leaders Program (DCELP) in 2018 and aspire to continue learning and growing as a leader in the DoD.
Outside of work, I spend most of my time chasing three small boys. I also regularly ring with a handbell choir - a team effort that continues to shape my outlook on positive teamwork.
