Lachelle studied chemical engineering in college and took advantage of every engineering group she could find. One of those was the Society of Women Engineers, which introduced her to CertainTeed. Once she graduated, Lachelle knew exactly where to go for the work-life balance and growth opportunities she always hoped to secure.
Lachelle sets goals for the Production Team and that align with the plant's overall goals. To help reach those goals, she encourages cross-training and individual development—which is an approach that’s benefitted every safety audit. Lachelle also takes special tasks, like participating in the Global Process Innovation Group in France to swap tips on sustainable processes.
