Extensive Emergency Operations & Military Background/ B.S. Criminology/ M.A. in Business Management/

M.S. Occupational Health with Safety Experience in Energy Industry


Dear ROI Staffing Representative,

I am respectfully requesting your consideration to potentially fulfill a position as Health Safety & Environmental Specialist within your corporation. For the past five years I have been employed in industrial operations within the Houston Ship Channel region. I have spent four years at ExxonMobil where I gained notable recognition as a valued member of the Fire Brigade and Industrial Rescue Team. Following a job offer at the Calpine, Texas City plant location I moved closer to home and was able to successfully complete my M.S. in Occupational Health and Safety. I am currently looking to employ my education and experience in order to apply myself in an EHS management capacity.

The major strengths I will bring originate within the unique cultures and supervisory positions I have been fortunate to be a part of throughout my career. I am a goal-directed, result-oriented professional with a strong background in organizational leadership and extensive exposure to emergency operations. I am a skilled communicator, persuasive and adaptable. I am self-motivated with high energy, initiative, and focus for the task at hand. I possess a keen insight to the views of others and am able to listen and identify issues or problem areas while forming innovative solutions. Most importantly, I will work safely, diligently, and to the best of my abilities in order to earn the respect and trust of my subordinates as well as my leadership.

I am eager for an opportunity to expand my opportunities as a contributing professional within the ROI family. I would very much welcome the opportunity to interview with your selection team and look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your time and for your consideration.
