US Department of Energy
Richland, WA
February 2005 – March 2008
I was the lead negotiator during formal deliberations, with the State of Washington and the Environmental Protection Agency, regarding the abandonment of two major Plutonium processing facilities and a major laboratory facility. During preparation for these negotiations, I assimilated considerable amounts of information regarding unique environmental situations and directed the presentation of this information to the three parties. This work required an in depth knowledge of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Washington Administrative Code, the National Environmental Policy Act, and other pertinent regulations. These negotiations led to the successful application of regulatory discretion and the avoidance of several millions of dollars in expenditures. I was heavily involved in the identification and promotion of innovative technologies aimed at accomplishing our mission and I was the division's Waste Minimization Coordinator.

In 1997, I was named the Hispanic Outreach Education Coordinator for the Richland Field Office. In this collateral role, I worked with local community leaders to provide educational opportunities for underprivileged youth in local schools.
