What led you to a career in safety?
I was working for a Fortune 500 company. I was their corporate wellness and fitness specialist. I got a call from the safety department, and they asked if I could come over and help put together a stretching program for a couple of their cells on the manufacturing floor. So I went over and I started working with the safety director at the time. Put together a stretching program, implemented it, and it went really well. And I really enjoyed working with employees on the floor. And then they also asked me to get involved in some ergonomic projects with some of the workstations. And I got a lot of positive feedback, and it was really fulfilling to be working with individuals, listening to what their needs were, and being able to help them make their job easier. And I knew at that point I wanted to move into safety and get out of fitness and wellness. And so I started my career. I went back to get my master's in safety, and it just took off from there, and flourished and loving it ever since.
