With the BEST Access Solutions a dormaka group company team to work with your project you get the expert that is right for that project.
I enjoy working with architects and the whole construction team to help bring the design from paper to a completed building, even the user meetings, RFI’s, submittals and job site visits. Working with the complexities of door hardware, fire life safety, accessibility and code issues inherent it in each situation keeps it interesting.
Certifying as a CCPR (Certified Construction Product Representative from CSI) was so important to my being a true resource for everyone I work with daily. I enjoy helping others learn about improving the construction process through good documents. I like working with people, learning from them and sharing my hard won insights.

Large nationwide base of contacts. Leader in CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) including past service on the national board of directors.
