With my seasoned experience and dedication to environmental sustainability, I would be an excellent addition to a company focusing on the future of our environment and energy needs. I am looking to jump-start my career in the environmental compliance field by intensifying my research, communication and writing technical documents proficiency. My position as a Research Facilitator had me working on a Master Plan review for the National Park Service, a cultural resources report for a construction project, and several components of proposed Environmental Impact Reports. I developed several skills through that training, including excellent writing and review skills, highly organized work practices and the coveted ability to prioritize projects when a deadline approaches. My experience with San Diego Gas & Electric had me maintaining California State and Federal regulations regarding vegetation management and consulting customers on regulation compliance. That was an excellent field position and allowed me to familiarize myself with common utility compliance issues. My current position developing New Living Green Home + Supply Store keeps me in touch with sustainable and eco-friendly building trends and environmental issues as well as brings the "green" movement to the American general public. My career goals are to become a part of the Environmental Consultant industry and make a difference in environmental compliance, site assessment and the related processes. As I am in the beginning stages of my career, I work harder in order to make a bigger impact on the work involved as I learn more about the mandated regulations and this field.
