Why I work at SummitET

At SummitET, we believe that preparedness is not an accident®. I was drawn to SummitET because it gives me the opportunity to work with government agencies and private sector clients to help them develop a system of preparedness for all threats and hazards. 


What do you perceive is the greatest challenge facing America today regarding your subject matter expertise? 

Ensuring that preparedness planning as well as prevention, protection, and response operations for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risks are cohesively integrated across all levels of government.
