As the Grounds Foreman, I oversee the day to day grounds maintenance operations for the University. I plan, organize and supervise the work operations of the shop through development of schedules, assignment of work, ordering equipment or supplies and providing for emergency response. As supervisor, I evaluate, counsel, take disciplinary actions and make recommendations on the hiring and firing of my staff. I, also, implement and ensure employee compliance with operating and safety procedures, and train employees in proper work and safety techniques.

I have been in the University of Denver's Grounds Operation since 1993.
