My background : I started working construction and building homes in the early 1970's. I built new homes and remodeled old ones. Then in 1975 I started my career working in environmental health. Initially I worked extensively in review, approval and inspections of on-site sewage treatment / disposal systems and on-site individual drinking water supplies. I also inspected thousands of regulated facilities for safety and sanitation. I worked extensively in fire safety, Lead poisoning control and all aspects of environmental health. I advanced in my career as a result of my dedication to quality and service to the public.
I retired after nearly 35 years as a regional director of environmental health for the State of New York, supervising environmental health programs in 18 counties.. During those years I also remodeled my own homes doing all aspects of home repair and maintenance. My background and experience have prepared me to provide you with a quality inspection and report regarding your prospective home. Serving and protecting the public was my chosen career for nearly 35 years. Understanding environmental safety and building safety was my field. I understand the importance of communication and conveying issues clearly .
This experience and more importantly my commitment to quality service to you is what I offer to my clients. It is my privilege to serve you and do the type of work I love.
I am a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and adhere to their stringent code of ethics.
