I earned an MAT in secondary science education in 2008.
I had served as the Oregon Governor's liaison to the NRC for 16 years, Oregon's representative to the NW Low Level Rad Waste Compact for 20 years and the Technical Advisor to the Governor in the case of a nuclear incident in or affecting Oregon for 16 years.
I have been a member of Oregon State University's Nuclear Engineering/Health Physics Advisory Committee since 1983.
