My knowledge of multiple disciplines of engineering as related to facilities engineering stems from my 21 years of experience as a Project Manager/Architect on various facilities designs. As Project Manager I have coordinated the design work of multiple disciplines to produce concise, coherent design packages for facilities construction. From my education and experience I am capable of reading and interpreting the design drawings of multiple disciplines. In Planning I am required to be knowledgeable of all disciplines of engineering to provide for the total needs of the Facility. Our Facilities Management Branch is responsible for the planning, utilization, maintenance and rehabilitation of 1.123 M square feet of facilities. My experience as a Planner for 21 years at Wallops has made me familiar and comfortable with the professional and technical disciplines related to planning. I have interacted a great deal with the technical and craft trades of our Facility to produce strong planning packages utilizing Pre-Project Planning. My many years as a Project Manager has made me familiar with the procurement process as well as contract administration. Having worked for the Virginia Department of Highways and Transportation for nearly 5 years as a Surveyor I was required to research and trace engineering surveys and plats through deed investigation in the county records building in both Accomack and Northampton Counties. This was to evaluate and locate right of ways, property lines, variances, and any other peculiarities that might affect the construction of new roadways. As a Project Manager/Architect I reviewed and evaluated Pre-Engineering Reports (PER's) prior to their release for design as general construction projects. My experience in all my positions has provided me the skills and ability to coordinate with all levels of management, professional, administrative and trade personnel. I have had to coordinate the work of General Contractor trade personnel and administration with NASA contract management. I have coordinated efforts between the Wallops Facilities Coordinating Committee and its counter-part at Greenbelt pertaining to facilities planning. I have helped to negotiate the proper needs of customers at the Facility with our design engineers, and I have coordinated efforts of outside A&E firms with our administrators and engineering staff. Having become familiar with general government regulations and requirements in engineering and construction, code compliances, (especially Americans with Disabilities Act) and working with our Environmental Operations group has provided me with knowledge of regulations interpretations. Seeking position involving planning, coordination, marketing of design ideas, or project management with municipal government or private agency involving general architectural elements, municipal planning, or code compliance most especially pertaining to accessibility for the physically challenged, or any planning related position in similar fields. I am seeking an office position primarily that will keep me inside most of the time.
