My team and I obtained our first Energy Star certification back in 2013.

I have also obtained the CHFM designation from the American Hospital Association. As well as my C.E.M. as a certified energy manger.
I have been an active member in my state chapter for CSHE since 2002 as well as a member of ASHE.
