COVID-19Continuity needs for Emergency Management organizations themselves, in relation to the "new normal" that this pandemic has created. See https://www.wmpllc.org/ojs/index.php/jem/article/view/3177 for the academic perspective, which can be adapted for a practitioner audience.

Also can present an advanced exercise discussion (and tabletop) on Electro-Magnetic Pulse as a catastrophic threat - and what EM organizations can really do to plan, organize, equip, train and exercise towards these.

Workplace SafetyMost of my professional focus has been on life safety - including that of emergency management and emergency service workers - so workplace safety always comes into play as the top priority.
SummaryThe 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.
