I am a seasoned professional with ever-increasing levels of responsibility and nearly twenty years of demonstrated performance in management duties, establishing streamlined protocol and tracking large programs to conclusion. My desire has always been to bring an efficient proactive approach to the operation and maintenance of the Waste Water system at Holley Navarre while maintaining a healthy relationship between the employees and the administration. My management goals are to increase operational efficiency and streamline procedures while maintaining strict adherence to sound environmental practices. I believe that these are the things that are expected of us by the Board of Directors and the members who have entrusted them to act as their voice.
Waste Water Treatment Plant Supervisor07/1995
to Current Holley Navarre Water System, Inc. – Navarre,
FL Since 1995, I have overseen the operation and maintenance of the 2.99 million gallon per day waste water treatment plant. I currently supervise 6 full time operators, 1 part time maintenance helper and I am the supervisor of record for the instrumentation/chlorination department which is currently staffed by one person. My personnel management duties also include providing payroll information to HR weekly, establishing operational objectives and delegating assignments to my operators and completing performance reviews annually offering praise and recommendations for improvement.
I have acted as project manager on behalf of Holley Navarre Water for three multimillion dollar plant expansion projects. I am also responsible for the development of our current operations as well as maintenance record keeping program, some of which have been shared by the Department of Environmental Protection with other utility companies throughout the state.
In 2011 we brought an additional treatment facility on-line in Holley. The treatment capacity of this facility is small but the responsibility and reporting requirements are the same as the larger plant. My staff and I met this challenge with no additional man power.
Contract Management Trainer12/2011

Ontario This is an annual contract position that I do once per year. I began with the Ontario Good Roads Association in 2011 and when the training program transferred to Epic Municipal Infrastructure Training in 2012 they picked my services back up there.
I provide a week long training course to utility management personnel covering topics specifically outlined by the Province as well as common sense management practices. The final day of the course is usually a "round table" type discussion in which I learn as much as they do from different situations in utilities all over North America.

Vocational Education Teacher07/1990

This position was terminated because funding for many high school vocational programs was lost. The auto mechanic and auto body programs were closed at that time.
