Role Models

Name:

Debora

Title:

Founder and Principal of a consulting company specializing in Web (Internet and Intranet) technology and regulatory management for environmental, health and safety professionals

Path:

I was an industrial, occupational EH&S specialist for 17 years, then learned how to use Web technology to do my job better and faster. I was asked to give talks at companies and to various organizations. As the demand increased, I decided to set up my own company focused on this expertize.

Comments:

There are many exciting and challenging specialties in the field of environmental, health and safety. Take varied science courses (biology, chemistry, etc.) to get a solid base from which to grow. EH&S is a broad career field offering many types of good-paying and fulfilling jobs. If you like to study about plants, ocean/water or land animals, microorganisms, the environment, human health as it relates to the use of or exposure to chemicals, etc., this could be the field for you!
