In 2001, I was honored to receive the UPS scholarship through the ASSE Foundation. Since graduating in 2001, my journey in the safety profession has been both challenging and rewarding. I currently consult clients providing injury prevention resources for their workplaces. I have been able to continue my education with a MS in industrial hygiene and obtain both a CSP and CIH designation. The support I have received from professional associations has greatly assisted in all these endeavors. I continue to pay it forward through mentoring those who are new to the profession and donating to scholarship funds which support the education of future safety professionals.
