Professional Summary

Before starting with ECRM I worked in the chocolate, pharmaceutical, and safety consulting industries. While working in those industries I performed comprehensive industrial hygiene assessments, construction site safety management, indoor air quality assessments, EHS program development, employee safety training, and site safety assessments.  While working at ECRM I have worked with various organizations in the service, hospitality, manufacturing, and construction industries. I have worked with organizations to identify and reduce risk, improve OSHA compliance, and improve safety cultures. I have experience in supervisor/employee training, JSA development, machine guarding assessments, lockout tagout procedure development, safety committee training, industrial hygiene assessments for air and noise hazards, and EHS program development and training. I enjoy coaching and training supervisors on improving their safety management skills. I am also a Certified Safety Professional (CSP), ASSE Member, and an OSHA Construction outreach trainer.

About Me

I am an avid fisherman, hunter, and golfer.

Favorite Quote

“Golf is the closest game to the game of life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball where it lies.” – Bobby Jones

If you had to pick one meal to eat every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I would choose something healthy like grilled chicken, quinoa, and steamed broccoli.

Where was your most memorable vacation?

I’ve had memorable fishing trips to Canada and New York. I also can’t forget about great trips to Germany and trying to utilize my six years of language training. The last trip included an unplanned trip to the mountains and a several-mile hike in the woods, during a snowfall, to find the next destination.
