I have more than six years of experience in the radiological industry, combining strong radiological skills with environmental wisdom to positively contribute to the US Department of Energy (DOE). I have cross-functioning expertise in mathematical formulas and problem solving, radiological fundamentals and controls, protecting the environment and the health and safety of the employees and general public.
All-American Track and Field 2002, Conference Champion 2002, Tech of the Month (Physical Therapy Tech) and 2008 (Radiological Control Tech) All-American Football Player 2007-2010. Promoted to Radiological Engineer Tech 2012
Currently assigned as a Radiological Engineer Technician overseeing the Routine Program and Instrumentation Program.
The Routine Program is a program designed to keep track of all routine surveys done on a frequent basis. Every month I send out cover sheets explaining the types of surveys to be performed which includes, Radiation, Contamination, Inspection, Soil, Air, Water, and Environmental Sampling.
In the Instrumentation Program I keep track of all instruments used in the radiological department. I tag out, troubleshoot, source check and document in a daily log the conditions of each instrument.
Provide support for the Portsmouth Facility Operations Field Support project. The work scope includes providing radiological protection coverage for the receipt, storage, movement, and packaging of process gaseous cascade equipment classified as "Manageable Handling/ Planned Expeditious Handling Highly Enriched Uranium."
Responsible for providing radiological protection coverage for the preparation, downsizing, packaging and movement of various excess materials for disposition to off site treatment and disposal facilities.
Radiological coverage includes air sampling calculations and stay times for workers protection.
Assisted in the completion of Waste Management's FY12 Performance Based Incentives: 100% packaging of process gaseous cascade equipment and intra-cell piping along with (7) shipments associated with five (5) cells in accordance with the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) for 100% fee.
Over sighted in the recovery and packaging of two radiological sealed sources. Using remote handling tools and special dosimeter to maintain exposure ALARA in High Radiation Area. Packaged a Cesium 137 source into a Type 7A 55-gallon drum. Packaged a Radium 226 source (40 R/hr on contact) into a Special Form Capsule (SFC), over packed into a Hopewell container, further over-packed/ packaged into a separated Type 7A containers for future shipment to an approved Treatment Storage, and Disposal Facility (TSDF).
Provided radiological coverage which includes air sampling, soil sampling and contamination data analysis for the installation of direct oxidant mixing of cells the Interim Remedial Measure project. This project was designed to accelerate the remediation of Portsmouth groundwater plume by exposing contaminated soils within the source area contamination greatly diminished ongoing Trichloroethane(TCE) releases to the groundwater plume and significantly reduced the long-term pump and treat liability for DOE.
Assisted in the decontamination of Resin Discharge tanks which includes wearing the appropriated Anti-contamination apparatus Air Fed Hood (AFH), air sampling and contamination data analysis. Control/ Globe valve exchanged with Cobalt 60 an isotope of concern, using various types of engineering controls such as glove bags and Control Surface Contamination Area (CSCA). ALARA calculations for stay times and predetermined dose assessments prior to entry into a High Radiation Area (HRA). Inspected/ Reposition of Radioactive Material (RAM) using an Accountability System.
Performed Pre/Post Job ALARA Reviews. Response immediately to a wide variety of unusual radiological events and casualties such as contaminated personnel and radioactive water leaking from a primary coolant system.
Documenting Radiological Deficiency Reports.
Maintain job proficiency through schedule on the job and classroom training; attend demonstrations and radiological critiques; complete test on a random basis; and re-qualifying by successfully completing retention test every thirty months.
Assisted on the Emergency Response Team.
Facilitated instructional classes aimed at health and wellness issues of the Northrop Grumman.
Administered multiple health screens to better educate employees on their individual fitness needs.
Independently organized "Health Stations" throughout the shipyard grounds for easy access to employees.
