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.
