About Me in 140 Characters:
I’m optimistic, friendly, dynamic and driven. I stand up for what I believe in, love my family (actual and honorary), music, sunshine, and penguins, but hate the cold.
Favorite Thing about Being a Practitioner:
Although I did not start my career with Transaction Support services, I am able to directly apply much of the knowledge/experience that I have gained through my tenure in the environmental field to the Transaction Support practice from site investigations (Phase I/IIs) to regulatory knowledge (compliance assessments).
What is a key ingredient for success as a practitioner?
Responsivenes. Transaction Support services are typically under very tight deadlines with the potential for significant risk. So, the sooner you get started on a project, the earlier you are able to get your client insights that are critical to their decision-making process.
What area(s) of the practice are you most interested in? Why?
Probabilistic cost modeling. I enjoy using my regulatory knowledge and experience to develop decision trees with costs assigned for each variable, to help clients understand and quantify the various potential outcomes within a given project's lifecycle.
