EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, SAFETY AND SECURITY
While I transitioned from a career in nonprofit origanizational leadership to operations and now to security/emergency management, the safety and security piece has been woven throughout: as an Juvenile Corrections Officer, Faith based organization Head of Security, and In-house Security Operation Center manager with Various Hospitals, retailer and financial institutions.
The diversity of experience equipped me with the ability to connect and collaborate with people at all levels of leadership, education, and society. I bring a passion for working with people and teams in the field to help communities by arming them with safety, preparedness, and security information and training, resulting in resilient populations.
Data tells a story, but not necessarily the entire story. Partnering with people in the field gives me insights that are not always present in the data. I start from the ground up with both data and practicle experience to build ideas, opportunities, and programs that impact safety, security, response, and preparedness.
As a leader, I am authentic, fair, and principled. I am known for my strong presence and ability to engage people. Leading and motivating my clients, employees and stakeholders to grow personally and professionally brings me great satisfaction. I thrive on opportunities to help people, companies, and communities prepare for and respond before, during and after a crises.
