  • Summary
    The protection of your staff, visitors, and the community in general is top of mind for most business owners, as well as response agencies and organizations. Achieving this can be a challenge but having a professional team, guided by an expert with an extensive emergency management and business continuity, is a key step in the right direction.

    My passion lies in ensuring community safety, high-level staff performance, and disaster readiness before, during and after any type of incidents may happen. I am well-versed in emergency planning strategies, disaster recovery and physical security planning, as well as state and federal emergency management procedures. I have proven expertise as a strategic and effective leader of teams within chaotic situations - and I always have two ways out of any situation. My expertise is in creating emergency plans, working on contingency planning, and developing / facilitating drills to help make emergency administration easier.
