ASNT Membership

Member since 1978


  • ASNT NDT Level III - MT, PT, RT, UT, and VT

Military Experience

  • US Air Force - flightline mechanic and avionic specialist

I have been an ASNT member for over 35 years and have actively served the Society and its members at the national level for the past 17, including a previous term as Director. A wide variety of council and committee leadership roles has given me insight into the operation of the Society and how it works to meet the needs of the members. I am currently serving a term as Director, and during this time, I have been privileged to be part of crafting our new Strategic Plan. I have also had the opportunity to help guide the execution of that plan through the Strategic Management Committee. It has been gratifying to see ASNT launch its certification program, extend its business ventures to the international market, and become a powerful advocate for the NDT profession. This is an exciting time for ASNT, and I hope to be part of its future success; I look forward to continuing my service as one of our Society’s Directors.
