As ARMSA's Director of Safety and Member Services, I provide safety training and consultation services for our general industry members along with coordinating training and resources through our partners for our members in the construction industry. In addition to the safety side of ARMSA, I also assist our insurance team to ensure our potential members receive excellent service. I take pride in what I do and enjoy developing programs, committees, and instruction where it does not currently exist. I find that work to be exciting as well as rewarding.
Everyone has a journey that molds their passion and their drive. For me, it was one event – one incident – that made me change my career path and continues to drive my passion for a safer work environment. Together with my colleagues, we work towards increasing safety awareness with the goal of reducing workplace incidents that will, in turn, lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums.
Developing ARMSA with the support of our partners, has allowed me to focus on recreating and remastering a safety program to benefit employers and their employees. I have a vision for resources to be easily accessible, and with ARMSA as that group that can be one main contact for your business, networking, safety, and insurance needs.
I am actively involved in the safety and workers’ compensation communities, currently launching social media campaigns for Drive Smart Arizona, which I am a partner of. In addition, I am the Social Media Chair for the Arizona Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), and I was recently added to the Board of Directors as Digital Marketing Director for Kids’ Chance of Arizona. Finally, as an Authorized Outreach Instructor, my expertise enables me to deliver valuable safety training to members of ARMSA and non-members alike.
The safety and workers' compensation communities are comprised of passionate individuals and groups working towards the same goal - everyone goes home. With that passion and drive coming together we can be a strong voice in our communities, a support system for employers, and advocates for safer work environments.
