As the Utilities Project Manager at the City of Margate, Florida, I am entrusted with the oversight and coordination of a diverse array of utility projects within the city's jurisdiction. My background in environmental engineering and water resource management equips me with a distinctive skill set that I apply to this multifaceted role.
Prior to my tenure with the City of Margate, I served as an Environmental Engineer for industry leaders such as Tyson Foods and Alcoa. My responsibilities encompassed the design and execution of environmental remediation projects, conducting comprehensive environmental assessments, and preparing regulatory compliance reports. My extensive involvement in water treatment and supply projects has instilled in me a profound understanding of the vital importance of proper water resource management.
In my current capacity, I collaborate closely with a dedicated team of engineers, technicians, and contractors to ensure the efficient and effective completion of utility projects. My role also involves working in concert with various city departments, including finance and public works, to secure the necessary approvals and permits and to align the projects with the city's overarching goals and objectives.
My commitment as Utilities Project Manager extends to delivering high-caliber projects that not only serve the residents of Margate but also comply with all regulatory standards.
I am adept at utilizing and demonstrating knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) in areas such as training, job development, job retention, and employment solutions. Moreover, as a fluent communicator in both English and Spanish, I am able to bridge the languages of technology and people, combining technical expertise with remarkable 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."
