I have worked in the specialized transportation industry for over ten (10) years now, spending the first eight (8) years working for Emmert International in their North Texas office. During my time at Emmert International, my role evolved from simple drafting to equipment design, to ordering OS/OW permits, to Project Management and finally Branch Manager. In 2011, I had the honor of joining Lone Star Transportation and working out of the Headquarters located in Fort Worth, Texas. At LST, I help manage our Heavy Haul Fleet, coordinate transportation projects, perform job inspections, create transportation drawings used for permitting & loading purposes, and design equipment for special hauling requirements. I am proficient in AutoCAD, Inventor, Creo Elements Pro 5.0 (Formerly Pro-E) and MS Office Products.
