Jan 2008 – Present: Environmental Scientist. Conducted waste management activities for over 60 various sites owned or formal owned by Chevron. These activities include management of waste drums, site demolition debris management, carbon change outs or vessel removal, roll off management, and large scale soil excavation coordination.
Conducted an evaluation to determine recycling and reuse opportunities for each Chevron obsolete material before waste declaration and work with Chevron regulatory and legal personnel on suitability of the waste minimization strategy upon Chevron concurrence. Characterize and profile all identified wastes with preferred Chevron SFU vendors. Coordinate the schedule and removal of wastes (nonhazardous, hazardous, universal, TSCA regulated, recyclables, etc.), including the preparation of manifests, bills of lading, and/or similar shipping papers, and provide container labeling instructions for site personnel to ensure that wastes are properly labeled while in storage and when ready for shipment. Conducted disposal contracting and managed the logistics and compliance. Review vendor invoices and pertinent waste shipment documentation for accuracy on behalf of Chevron.
Conducted Emergency Response work for petroleum gas companies and class 1 rail road companies. Activities include waste inventory and characterization (sampling or SDS searches), vendor procurement, site regulatory check for waste management purposes, completion of necessary regulatory paper work and waste profiles, coordination and oversight of roll off deliveries and waste pick up activities, and follow for certificates of destruction and TSD signed manifest copies for client records. When possible manufactures of the released product were contacted and assisted in getting them to approve the shipment of the released product back to their facility for remanufacturing as an off-specification product exempting it from being considered a waste. All waste and material shipments were logged into GHD’s WasteManager Database.
Managed the recycling program for Lear and IAC's ByProduct Management (BPM) program which focused on waste reduction, reuse and recycling of all byproduct commodities such as cardboard, plastic, metal, wood, and paper.

Performed multimedia audits and compliance audits of hazardous waste (incinerators, landfills, treatment facilities) and non-hazardous waste (landfills, deep well injection, wastewater treatment facilities) disposal facilities and recycling facilities (oil, battery, lamp, paint facilities) for various clients. The facility audits were performed to determine if the facility should be used by the client and added to their vendor approval lists. Detailed reports were generated containing the following: recent and historical information, capabilities, ownership, operators, groundwater, permits and plans, financial, enforcement actions, acceptable/unacceptable waste, etc.
Performed compliance audits of client owned waste disposal facilities to verify if facility was operating in compliance with all operating permits (air, waste, and water), regulatory plans and requirements, and internal client specific procedures.
