I joined the UNC Charlotte Environmental Health and Safety team in October 2018 as a Health and Safety Analyst. The Health and Safety team provides campus oversight for occupational health and safety programs such as confined space entry, electrical safety, indoor air quality, asbestos and hearing conservation.
Prior to joining the university, I enjoyed a 22 year career in environmental protection as an analytical chemist and quality manager with a national environmental testing laboratory. In the laboratory and on remediation sites, safety was always my second hat. As I learned to be safe and keep my team safe in these settings, I developed a passion for promoting safety. When I decided to make a career change becoming a safety professional was the natural choice. I look forward to promoting safety on the UNC Charlotte campus.
Make safety a way of life! My house is the one where everyone is wearing safety glasses and hearing protection while doing yard work.
