I have 20 years of experience in the construction industry and my responsibilities include cost engineering, preconstruction planning, value engineering, consulting, team leading, and project management for complex projects.
I have been involved in several projects in the nuclear sector for the U.S. DOE, the U.K. Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and for Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. I provided cost consulting, through project benchmarking, independent reviews and estimates, for projects ranging from nuclear waste storage facilities to waste retrieval machines to vitrification plants. I led a team on the UPF ICEs/EIRs for Long-Lead Procurements and Site Prep (LLP/SP), Mechanical Electrical Building (MEB), Main Processing Building (MPB), Salvage and Accountability Building (SAB) and Process Support Facilities (PSF), as well as the ICE for the UPF Long-Lead Procurements for Skids and Gloveboxes. I was also a main contributor to the MOX Performance Baseline Update.
In 2018 I led the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) Parametric Evaluations, which included analysis of to-go cost, schedule and risk with respect to funding and milestone constraints. More recently I led the independent cost estimate for the National Science Foundation's Antarctic Infrastructure Modernization for Science (AIMS) project. And for the past several years, I supported two reactor decommissioning projects through the US Army Corps of Engineers (SM-1A in Ft. Greely, Alaska and SM-1 in Ft Belvoir, VA) as the lead cost estimator.
I am a project management professional (PMP) and certified cost professional (CCP) with a BS in industrial design and an MBA from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
