Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 (555) 432-1000,

I am currently employed at the U.S. Army Public Health Command (USAPHC) in the Occupational Health Science Portfolio. My role at the USAPHC includes evaluating environmental and occupational sampling data and preparing technical reports on potential exposures. In addition, I have over seven years of work experience in the environmental health with the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH). My experience with PADOH includes; preparing technical documents in conjunction with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) at environmental sites; evaluating potential health hazards, including exposures to lead in drinking water; communicating the results of health assessments; serving as an agency liaison; participating in multi-agency projects; assessing the relationship between exposure and the health effects; and providing conclusions and recommendations to control environmental exposures. As part of my position at PADOH, I have written 17 health consultation documents, which are published on ATSDR website. I also have five years of experience performing laboratory analysis of biological samples and the collection of environmental samples (groundwater and soil samples) at environmental sites.
