My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Cellular, Molecular, and Microbiology from the University of Calgary, in Calgary, Alberta, and a Graduate Certificate in Environmental Science from the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, Australia.
I have experience in the laboratory analysis of biological contaminants and the applications of microbiology to EHS projects. I have twelve years of experience in providing occupational hygiene consulting services including hazardous materials surveys and abatement, assessment of indoor air quality (general and LEED assessments), conducting industrial hygiene and worker exposure assessments, and conducting fungal assessments. Industrial hygiene contaminants include lead (airborne and surface), asbestos, silica (airborne and surface), particulate, BTEX, hydrocarbons, PCBs, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), methyl isobutyl ketone (MIK), isocyanates, welding fume, diesel exhaust, formaldehyde, flour dust, hexavalent chromium, fiberglass, refractory ceramic fibre and many others. I have also been involved in all aspects of consulting projects including liaising with clients, conducting fieldwork, interpreting data, preparing reports and overall project management and deliverable oversight.
