How I can help you

I have been retired since January, 2010. I earned a degree in Letters, Arts, and Science from Penn State. The first 18 years of my professional career were with Hammermill Paper Company starting off in the Production Planning Department. I then worked in Customer Service, Marketing, and spent seven years as Credit and Collection Manager. My final 8 years with Hammermill I served as the Public Affairs Manager. When Hammermill was acquired by International Paper, I was appointed Communications Manager. I left IP after four years and in 1996 I was named Program Manager for the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) in Pennsylvania. This program was developed by the American Forest and Paper Association in Washington, DC, and I served in this capacity for 14 years.
