Experienced Laboratory Analyst and Environmental Field Technician. Currently working as a TEM/PLM/PCM Microscopist identifying asbestos fibers in air and bulk samples. For the determination of asbestos concentrations in air samples by TEM method, asbestos structures are identified by a combination of morphology, elemental chemistry via Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDXA), and Selected Area electron Diffraction (SAED). I was fortunate to have started my career so soon after graduating and acquire a familiarity in many areas. As an Asbestos Project Monitor I worked in conjunction with the Department of Labor to oversee the removal of asbestos on abatement projects. My experience in the field continued as I was introduced into construction materials testing. Analysis for strength and compaction with the use of special equipment and tools was done on job sites and standard state procedures were performed in the laboratory. The unsafe work environments and close proximity to hazardous materials posed as a challenge both physically and mentally. While attending college I was able to complete a student senior research project that included sediment sampling (coring) from lake beds to complete Sedimentological and Microfossil analyses. Abstract was presented at a USGS conference.

03/2011 to Current
Laboratory Analyst Bae Systems Annapolis Junction, MD,
  • Prepare and analyze air samples using TEM analysis in accordance with AHERA (40 CFR App.A to Subpart E) to determine the presence of asbestos fibers as well as TEM NIOSH 7402. Also perform analysis of air samples using PCM NIOSH 7400 methods
  • Asbestos testing is performed on large volumes of bulk samples of building material using PLM methods in accordance with EPA 600/R-93/116 and EPA 600/M4-82-020. EPA 400/1000 Point Counts also performed when requested by client
  • Samples are initially examined using stereo microscopy then prepped using various techniques and analyzed by polarized light microscopy (PLM) and dispersion staining techniques for positive identification of suspect fibers and quantitation
  • All testing is done under company SOP guidelines and all daily and monthly QC requirements and calibrations are always met. Analysts are required to demonstrate daily work procedures under the observance of an Auditor in order to maintain laboratory credentials with NVLAP performance standards
