My team assisted in the development of a new operating structure for regional preparedness planning for the Portland Urban Area. The project involved researching national models applicable to Portland, interviewing local stakeholders in five counties and two states, and conducting a series of workshops to build acceptance for the proposed changes.
I conducted a national survey of continuity of operations plans (COOP) in emergency management agencies and developed a marketing strategy for COOP products for the Veritas Software Corporation.
I developed an administrative plan and a strategic planning process for Genentech’s emergency preparedness program.
As part of a national team, I conducted assessments of state-level emergency management programs under the National Plan Review conducted by the Department of Homeland Security after Hurricane Katrina.
I developed a draft standard of care for the Golden Gate Regional Center that consolidated mandatory state requirements in multiple regulations into a single document. The standard included specific guidance on how to establish and maintain an emergency preparedness program in facilities for the developmentally disabled.
