I am an Environmental Manager, proficient at inspiring self-confidence and a positive attitude in others. I have planed and performed engineering duties in the prevention, control, and remediation of environmental hazards using various engineering disciplines.
My work experience includes engineering plan reviews, project management, wastewater treatment, soil quality, hazardous waste treatment and collection, site remediation, and pollution control technology. In addition, I have served as liaison with federal, state, and local agencies or officials on wastewater and hazardous waste program requirements.
I can utilize and demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) in training, job development, job retention, and employment solutions. In addition, as an accomplished communicator in both English and Spanish who can fluently speak the languages of both people and technology, I possess the ability to combine their technical expertise with exceptional interpersonal skills.

My motto: Carpe diem – seize the day!
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
“Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way -
that is not easy.”
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the 'universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something
separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest
to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this
completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
