I bring knowledge and experience in accessibility, construction and industrial manufacturing with my Accessibility Certification (RHFAC) and Registered Safety Professional (CRSP). I help change culture to ensure compliance to universal design and add value to the built-environment through design of new facilities and upgrading redesigns. Projects include public transit, subways, schools, factories, stores and offices. My professional services include: users’ evaluation, training, assessment, audits, inspections, incident investigation, emergency response, program development, performance monitoring and strategic planning. Outcomes are achieved by utilizing integrated management compliance to National/Local Building Codes and International Guidelines and by having an effective, proactive, sustainable and documented accessibility management system for universal access. I continue to bring innovation, quality and motivation for excellence to all levels and positions in organizations.
