  • When I started at The Pathway School (a school for children with special needs)I was promoted from Maintenance Associate to Facilities Manager, in less that 12 months. During that point in time we went from a residential/day school to strictly a day school now serving over 40 + school districts.
  • My accomplishments are as follows:
  • 2010 Installed 70+ programmable pin code thermostats, saving the school 15-20% in utilities costs.
  • 2011 Ensured a smooth shutdown of the residential program. Securing our 5 dormitories, and adjusting our utilities, and insurance accordingly.
  • 2012 Initiated internal study with the educational and administration departments on how to make better use of the vacated dorm room space.
  • 2013 I drew up floor plans to incorporate our largest dormitory (5,000 sq./ft.) into our extended services building, which would house our occupational therapy, speech, and careers departments. My plan was approved by the various departments and drawings (75% gut job) were sent on to our architect. Permits were then submitted to the township which were approved. Due to the fact that we had an extended time line for completion as these programs we already satellited around campus we decided to do the project in house (80%) saving the school 250K. Construction was completed 2014 making a 2 story building constructed in 1972 totally ADA compliant, and quite a successful project!
  • 2014 Installed a swipe card entry card system throughout campus for exterior doors, ensuring the safety of students and staff from any unauthorized personal.
  • 2015 Began the process of converting all campus lighting from incandescent, and halogen, to LED lighting. Budgeting our CAPEX, along with the assistance of PECO rebates and donations from some of our electrical vendors. To date our entire campus is now 90% LED. This includes interior occupancy sensors, exterior motion sensors, and digital timers throughout our campus. Electrical savings to the school 15-20%
  • 2016 Continued to build on our swipe card system now including interior locks on student bathrooms, and other public areas. This also allowed us to track movement of problem students who may have eloped from class due to a unforeseen behavioral issue.
  • 2017 Completed in house (95%) renovation of our HR and Admissions departments wings, saving the school 50 - 60K.
  • 2018 Coordinated with the finance, and education departments along with the GC for a 3.0M renovation to 2 of our dormitory buildings built in the 60's, converting them to ADA compliant classroom, and office space. Construction started 5/18 and was completed 10/18. I attended weekly meetings, walked the job every day with the CS, and reviewed all COR's. By doing so we eliminated the need for a project Mgr. saving the school 30 - 40K
  • 2018 Relocated our cafeteria (approved by TWP. & State) to an unoccupied classroom building in preparations for renovations starting on 1/19 to our cafeteria building. This move enabled us to do the project in one stage as opposed to three saving the school 70 - 80K.
  • 2019 Coordinated with the finance and education departments along with the GC for a 3.5M renovation to our cafeteria building. built in the 60's, converting the building to ADA compliant cafeteria , and one of the first STEM centers in the country for children with special needs.

  • 2020 COVID Increased our night time cleaning staff, and added a 2nd daytime janitor. Purchased a Gator for the janitors to respond to disinfecting request more quickly around campus throughout the day. Procured a 6 month supply of PPE, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizing stations, and wall mount temperature stations. Installed UVR air cleaners in all our HVAC duct systems about campus.
