Summary: I earned a Doctorate in Chemistry from University of Houston and I will soon complete a Master's in Environmental Management, with a double major in Environmental, Health & Safety from the University of Denver. Six years of experience in academic research and three in chemical analysis services. I look forward to rejoin the workforce now that my children are in school as an Environmental Manager or an Environmental, Health and Safety Specialist.
Goal: To transfer the scientific expertise that I acquired earlier in my career to collaborate in the development of creative solutions designed to address the environmental, health, and safety challenges that business and government organizations face today to achieve their regulatory compliance and sustainable development goals. I look forward to rejoin the workforce after taking an extended break to look after my family. I will work diligently to obtain a professional certification such as CSP or CIH as soon as I have enough years of experience in the job.
