Platform Statement

As the Regional Vice President, I not only bring my professional and membership experience, I also bring five years of experience in Chapter Leadership and six years of experience as a Regional Officer, including Northern Area Director. My goal is to assist the Region and its Chapters in exemplifying Member engagement in a proactive way that adds value not only to the members but also to their community. I want to help in reinforcing our commitment to the education of the profession and mentoring the current and future generation of EH&S professionals. I will strive to provide leadership and guidance in a manner that makes a positive difference in our memberships’ live, careers, and community.

As the Regional Vice President, I would make it a high priority in continuing the growth of providing trainings and educational opportunities to the entire Region. I would like to not only encourage the participation in monthly Local Chapter meetings but also like to see the participation, collaboration, and knowledge exchange of our professionals within our Region through consistent webinars – available to all members of the 14 chapters comprising Region VI.
