Platform Statement

Longtime CT Resident that has been involved in Safety for over 20 years.  I am an Outreach Trainer (500 & 501) and have two MS degrees in EHS and holds CSP certification.  Currently occupying the CT Valley Chapter President position for two consecutive years where we have monthly meetings slated for 2020.  This Chapter also has annual joint meetings with the CT CBiH Chapter.  As Chapter President, I have ensured continuing communication to fellow Members with newsletters every month since September 2018.  This Chapter also has an Affiliate Section (Western MA) who has a partnership with the local OSHA office.  This provides great information to local Contractors as well as hosts the annual “OSHA Summer Summit” every June in Amherst MA,

I have worked on three continents and have worked under stressful conditions (i.e. Afghanistan and Antarctica).  These conditions have allowed me to work with diverse groups and conditions where not every Safety solution is available via a catalog.

My experience (professionally and otherwise) makes me a viable Regional VP candidate.  My employer (and CEO) “Gets it”.  He is very supportive of my Safety mission and activities.  This will allow me to travel to the various Chapter meetings and provide outreach to fellow Region VIII Leaders.
