Midwest Field Representative, NEMA
Electrical equipment and products play a key role in public safety to ensure the places we live; work and play are free of electrical hazards.
NEMA is committed to safe electrical installations and
products wherever electrical power is used, and I am excited to be the association’s new Midwest Field Representative supporting
My role as a NEMA Field Representative includes providing support for the adoption and proper application of the National Electrical Code® (NEC®) and any other matters impacting the electroindustry in my 17-state region.
Before joining NEMA, I worked in NFPA's Regional Operations as a Regional Electrical Code Specialist providing support to state and local jurisdictions with the adoption and use of the NEC and other National Fire Protection Association electrical codes and Standards in a 26-state region that included the Midwest and Western states.
Prior to NFPA, I worked as an electrical inspector for the Building Department in Wayne County, Ohio, for 16 years. For the latter 14 years, I also served as the Chief Building Official, supervising the operations and personnel of the building department.
I began my career in the electrical industry back in 1985 as an electrician, which provided me with a great foundation in the electrical industry and hands-on experience with the installation and maintenance of all phases of electrical systems in commercial, industrial and residential occupancies. ei
