Dear Sir / Madam,

 

Please consider & submit my resume for all positions my experience applies to.

I have 24 years experience in the nuclear field.  During ten years in the Navy I created and reviewed naval nuclear procedures,  8 years as a Radiation Monitor ,  6 years as supervisor, and  4 years as a radiological controls shift supervisor ( revising procedures & performing them).  Since leaving the Navy,  I have spent 14 years working outages at commercial nuclear plants.   At some of the outages I worked as an ALARA specialist detailing procedures and creating computer programs for controlling compliance.  I am hazardous material controls & shipping certified.  I am well versed in all governing documentation and procedures.  The rest of the outages I was working as a Radiological Controls Technician.  I also have 20 years experience with computers, consulting & trouble shooting software & hardware.  I have worked 33 nuclear plant outages.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for your time.
