Platform Statement

Increasingly, today’s safety professional is expected to have expertise in not only safety, but also industrial hygiene, and often environmental compliance.  With the lingering impacts of the most recent financial crisis, I envision this trend continuing to grow and feel that those of us who wish to keep up must stay current in all areas of environmental, health, and safety.  It goes without saying, that participation in ASSE will provide opportunities to gain knowledge in each of these technical areas, but a lesser known benefit is also the potential to improve one’s “soft skills.”

When I first joined ASSE in 1999, I didn’t fully comprehend the breadth of all that the organization had to offer the safety professional.  It wasn’t until I took an active role on my local chapter’s executive committee in 2006 that I fully understood the resources that participation in the organization affords.  ASSE not only serves as an avenue for technical professional development, but it also provides opportunities, for those who choose to take on organizational responsibilities, to enhance their leadership, communication, and other “soft skills.” Safety professionals who have a combination of these technical and “soft skills” are increasingly sought after by employers. 

If awarded a second term as Area Director, it is my hope to continue to assist the chapters within my territory in conveying these lesser known development opportunities to their members. Hopefully, this will increase participation at the executive committee level and improve succession planning amongst the chapters. To this effort, I will be bringing my 9+ years of progressive experience serving on the Penn-Jersey Chapter Executive Committee - organizing events, professional development opportunities, etc. and, as Area Director- assisting chapters with manage their succession planning and maintaining their charter.
