HOW DID YOU BEGIN YOUR CAREER?

I began my career in general industry. I had a role as quality and safety manager. I oversaw four locations.

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY?

The construction industy began to make safety important and companies started to understand that each project starts with safety. I wanted to be a part of that movement and help make a difference in peoples lives.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I enjoy working with people and sharing information that can save their life.

BEST ADVICE:

If I am granted the opportunity to teach people about safety, I should always start off asking them who is in charge of their safety. I will get all kids of answers, but let them know they are in charge of their own safety.

BEST EXPERIENCE:

In 2011 working on the Cleveland Medical Mart now known as the Global Center for Health Innovation. The opportunity to work on a project that large one that had safety challenges that safety professionals study for but never thing you would be dealing with them all on a daily basis. I used my OSHA book daily which kept me on top of things that affected our work. Working with all trades and sharing information with other safety professionals was an experience that I will never forget.
