What do you do at Envista?
I use my extensive industry experience to identify, analyze, and remediate damages resulting from structural or building defects, and insurable events such as fires, storms, vehicle impacts, and other natural disasters. I also assess the structural condition of as-built structures, such as retaining walls, basements, and apartment buildings, and rehabilitation of existing structural assets. I provide consultation, acting as an expert witness in the court of law serving the insurance/legal industries, to present and support engineering investigation reports.
Before you joined Envista, what were you doing?
I started my career as a structural design engineer, providing engineering designs and drawings for RC structures, towers, girders, indoor and outdoor substation equipment, and pre-engineered buildings. I then moved to forensic engineering assessments of building distress from cracking and movement-related damages due to insurable events.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
I am provided with opportunities to accomplish something helpful and make a difference.
What do you love most about what you do?
Assisting people in achieving a fundamental need by planning, constructing, and inspecting a place they call home.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I love to spend time with my family and friends, travel, reading, and music.
