President / CEO
Aviation has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My grandfather and father were pilots, and my father took me flying often. When I earned my pilot’s license, I joined a group of people connected not only by a love of flying but also an awareness of how necessary quality maintenance and parts are in the aerospace industry.
This awareness has helped me as a business person in the industry. Having experience in sales, estimating, planning, production, and as general manager, I have turned my passion for flying into concern for the customers, passengers, and aircraft depending on our products.
I am proud to be a part of today’s Laminated Shim Family. The people who work here have shown they are unstoppable and committed at all levels. This may be the best team in our history, and we still strive to improve.
Back In 1985, I needed to earn income for the summer (I worked for a school district) and applied for a job at a temporary agency.
To my delight, my assignment ended up being a summer job, with an offer to stay on with the company.Read More
Fast forward 34 years later and you can still find me at Laminated Shim where I am now Vice President.
In those years I have worked in most all areas of the company. This allowed me to acquire experience in all aspects of our company and processes. I use this experience to teach/train new employees as well as those that transition upwardly within the company.
I am proud to be part of a company that is known in the industry for our excellent quality parts, and excellent customer service.
My dad was in the Navy and my uncle in the Air Force, so planes were always part of my life. But my interest in the aerospace field really began when I was seven and my dad brought me to his job at Laminated Shim. Seeing all the shop machinery immediately sparked my imagination and curiosity.Read More
I’m excited to work in today’s aerospace industry. Laminated Shim’s parts are used on everything from planes flying to Hawaii to probes launched into the solar system. And I get to be a part of the engineering advances that enable faster, and more efficient aircraft to make these journeys safely.
Working at this company has been especially rewarding. I’m not only part of a fascinating global industry; I work with people who are dedicated to be the best in their fields while working together as a team.
When I was 10, my Grandma took me to the Boeing factory in Tacoma, WA for my first real adventure. To a small girl walking through the plant, the planes being built seemed massive. But the tech behind them impressed me more than anything. For years afterward, I watched the fast-paced evolution of the aerospace industry and its new technologies with fascination.Read More
I came to Laminated Shim for the opportunity to contribute to a field that I’d watched for years from the outside. It’s been a wonderful experience. Working in such dynamic industry challenges me to keep learning about the aircraft and field that I fell in love with as a child. Laminated Shim has supported my growth every step of the way too. We are a close group here, a family that works well together and can rely on one another to get the job done.
