About Strong Performance Management, LLC
Welcome Site Visitors ...
When I founded Strong Performance Management, my vision was to help others manage their performance and own their professional development for the life of their careers.
Through the application of data-backed practices, professionals are better positioned to make decisions about their performance and development. Individuals continue to make progress and achieve goals. I am honored to share my story and capabilities with you.
Throughout my career, I’ve focused on learning. I have concentrated on developing professionally while working full-time since I began working at the age of sixteen. Just like many professionals, there were times when I focused on earning my degrees and other times where conferences and training programs were my priority—there were many times when I did all three simultaneously, working, training, and going to school. Heavy workloads or other challenges were not enough to stop me, rather, I approached tough times with determination because I knew I was heading in the right direction. I attribute my career progression to lifelong learning, both formal and informal, and to those who supported me along the way.
Starting my company, Strong Performance Management, LLC, seemed like a natural expression of my passion for lifelong learning because I am committed to supporting others with their professional development. I have been privileged to work with some amazing talent and with many technical professionals who are involved in making the world a better place.
During my time at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (19 years), I worked with many talented individuals spanning numerous departments. Dr. Tom Mason, Professor Emeritus of Economics and Engineering Management, and I focused on outreach to alumni during out time together. My efforts involved supporting the identification and development of continuing education programs for alumni and technical professionals employed in high tech industries. I conducted feasibility and competitor analysis and developed business plans, budgets, and marketing plans. I also partnered with Dr. Craig Downing, Associate Dean of Lifelong Learning and Professor of Engineering Management, and other faculty to offer continuing education programs for licensed professional engineers.
My experience also involved working directly for the late President Matt Branam, where I provided support and expertise in the areas of financial analysis, marketing, communication, project management, major donor relations, client coordination. I led strategic initiatives as directed by the President of Rose-Hulman. I served as Rose-Hulman’s liaison to Shelby County and the City of Shelbyville, where I negotiated the terms and created a five-year memorandum of understanding and a co-branding agreement that established a five-year partnership between Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Shelby County, and the City of Shelbyville, Indiana.
