I have spent over 20 years in the plastics industry, with the past ten years focused on developing materials for and designing flexible plastic packaging. The past five years have involved a deep focus on increasing the sustainability of plastic packaging, where at Dow Plastics I lead the Recycle Ready development program. Recently I have joined the Liquibox team and I am leading projects to reduce the use of plastic materials, enhance recyclability of our products, and experiment with new options like bioplastic. As a professional chemist I bring a deep understanding of technology, and as a business person I bring the skills to connect technology to market.
Why do you want to serve on the SPC Executive Committee?
I have a passion for protecting the planet while still promoting the positive aspects of plastics and plastic packaging. I am also driven to serve the broader industry and provide guidance on truly sustainable options for the economy.
