What led you to a career in safety?
For me, the defining moment that made me choose safety, really chose me. At the time, I was working at an insurance company, Fortune 500, and a window fell out of our skyscraper and killed a woman on the street. At that time, the CEO decided that he wanted to beef up the safety culture, so he brought in Bill Phillips, who is a former ASSP president, and he chose me to be on Bill's team. Bill helped guide me to IUP, where I got a master's in Safety Science and began training safety teams all over the country. And that's pretty much how I began, and here I am now.
