Why I want to serve as the BISC Vice Chairman:

"My two workplace passions are bus safety and Human Resources: Having grown up in the bus business, I learned the safety culture at a young age and then pursued a career in Human Resources in college.

BISC allows me to share my knowledge with my peers while at the same time learning from them and their experience. Having been involved with BISC for well over 10 years, I have been proud to watch this organization grow in size and knowledge. I served as the Vice Chair for the Workplace Safety and Health Committee under Al Smith before becoming Chair of that Committee in 2014. I would be honored to further serve this group by helping lead BISC as its Vice Chair."
