I communicate regarding the status of specific environmental projects and am responsible for assembling environmental project teams, assigning individual responsibilities, identifying appropriate resources needed, developing schedules to ensure timely completion of projects, and reviewing project deliverables. I am responsible for all aspects of the project over the entire project life span (initiation, planning, execution, control, close, scheduling, cost and risk management).
