I started at Regal in late 2005 as a legacy, while I went to school part time, since my father has worked here since the early 1990’s as a machinist. My career began as an entry-level milling machine operator in the blank department and an interest in machining was discovered within this family-oriented manufacturing company. The ability to learn new skills and the curiosity of understanding making things from metal led to a progression up the ranks when I was promoted to CNC Department Lead. The challenge of running some of the most sophisticated grinding machinery in the world has led to new and exciting production. Taking on the challenges of tool applications and design will give me a new perspective on how our tools are used.
