Professional Credentials

As a Virginia Certified Professional Geologist (1999 to present), I have worked for the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) over twenty years.  Key positions within the NAVFAC Environmental Business Line (Engineer, Geologist, Hydrogeologist, Architect, Geophysicist) require professional registration by independent outside organizations to demonstrate the competency and highest ethical standards to Supported Commands, regulators, and the general public.  Professional credentials prove commitment to rigorous application of academic accomplishment, practical experience, the discipline to demonstrate knowledge by passing a proctored exam, and adherence to a strict code of ethics.
