With 30 years in safety around the globe, I’m dedicated to education and communications to ensure the safety and well-being of my teammates.

From safe shipment of 7 million tons of cargo and 117 million gallons of fuel via ships and aircraft across 11 countries annually (with no Class I mishaps) to training 53% of Navy Supply Corps School’s students in Transportation of Hazardous Materials, including Mobile and TeleVideo Training.
My vision for serving as Assistant Administrator is collaborate and support the Administrator in transforming TCPS to achieve best in practice training and communications with our ASSP community. I want to pursue “best in choice” safety training programs and value added communications. Governance is essential for rigor in standard work and knowledge management. My executive leadership, including Joint Community of Interest Lead who completed the first revision of Navy Knowledge Online Joint Matters website and “It’s Your Experience” Playbook on joint assignments, can deliver positive effects on the training and communications practice specialties.
My vision for TCPS training for safety and health professionals is offer novice to expert benchmark programs to build and sustain excellence in their respective organizations. After recently completing 13 courses and graduating from the Texas A&M Extension Service as an OSHA approved Certified Safety and Health Official (CSHO), I know the value of education. As Navy Supply Corps School and National Defense Transportation Association Instructor of the Year and Master Training Specialist, I can seek collaborative programs which deliver simple, but effective, training objectives and communication tools.
Education and Communication delivers 1+1=3 (Synergy).
