Scientific, environmental, or management position in western Washington, western Oregon, or northwest

Organized, forward-thinking, results-driven professional with ten years of scientific and management experience in
a variety of demanding and fast-paced environments. Excellent interaction with individuals at all levels, from
students to employees and supervisors. Detail-oriented and resourceful in completing projects effectively and
efficiently. Strengths include:

       Ability to multi-task successfully

       Thoughtful interaction with employees and community members
       Preparation of project-level and departmental budgets and timelines
       Excellent oral and written communication skills

Project Management
Project management has included a broad variety of settings, from short-term results needed on a quick-
turnaround basis to long-term studies that were part of a multi-year, multi-stakeholder investigation. This work has
involved coordination of personnel and liaison work at many locations: headquarters, other corporate offices
nationwide, consultants worldwide. In summary, this work required marketing, thorough planning of resources,
tracking of time and financial statistics, and providing updates to clients and management. I have a proven record
of accomplishment for on-time and under-budget projects.

Involved in several innovative projects to address unsolved problems. Project manager and analyst for original
research into emissions-based landing fees to reduce airport emissions in Boston. Worked with airport personnel,
consultants, and other experts to devise options for the airport authority. Leadership of Port Townsend Paper’s
projects to respond to community concerns and to study and reduce loading to and odorous emissions from
wastewater through substantial data collection, analysis, and reporting.

As a past chair & vice-chair of our regional Solid Waste Advisory Committee, a supervisory participant in the paper
mill’s Environmental Upteam (where superintendents, engineers, and maintenance personnel work to create
environmental and process improvements), and a consultant representative at public hearings, I bring together a
broad spectrum of people with divergent opinions and goals and direct their energies into a common goal or bring
them to common ground.

Communication accomplishments include both educational and business efforts: marketing of consultancy services,
web design and marketing, public awareness programs, company newsletters, training of company personnel,
classroom teaching, and tutorials at the university level while in graduate school. These efforts have involved
lectures, PowerPoint presentations, computer-based training, and one-on-one discussions.
