Complementing previous experience inventory, I developed a comprehensive Business Continuity Planning Guide and supporting detailed toolset that covers all aspects of planning for and managing emergencies within the business continuity management framework.

I can analyze existing business structures, processes, procedures and plans, and develop solution vision.

I am adaptable from being self-directed and working on a single process area, up to leading team efforts in the development of complete emergency management strategies and plans.

I bring a balanced approach that ensures that all aspects of emergency preparedness projects – people, technology and the organization – are ready when an emergency or crisis occurs.
