Interim Occupational Health and Safety Officer
I started working for Facilities Services in May 2014, and currently serve as the Occupational Health & Safety Officer.
Prior to joining Lewis & Clark, I earned a master’s degree from Willamette University, where I was also a two-time district champion for the track and field team.
My current role fulfills the College’s efforts to provide a safe and healthy environment for all community members and guests. I oversee the Health & Safety program by monitoring safety systems and reporting to regulatory agencies, insurance carriers, and municipal responders. The responsibilities of the OHSO include life safety code compliance, hazardous material management and disposal, administration of the driver training program, and emissions reporting.
I am also involved with the College’s emergency preparedness efforts, and provide Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and other safety training for community members, and have been a Pioneer Success Institute lead facilitator for three years.
I have many interests outside work that mostly involve some combination of my family and friends, the outdoors, reading, and board games.
