I am a QSR industry leader with roughly 24 years of experience in operations and training. I currently work for Inspire Brands leading an Ops Services and Performance Management team. The exciting aspect of my job is that is encompasses operations and training, so I get the best of both worlds daily! I have been a member of CHART since 2018 and became a Certified Hospitality Trainer that same year. I am committed to being a leading source of development for operation and training professionals.
