Regulator Becomes Consultant…

In my past career, I was a county health inspector  – you know the kind, where restaurant scores and inspection notes were  sensationalized reported on newscasts for ratings to inform viewers of best places to eat….   But I digress.  Yeah, that kind of health inspector.  Except I mostly inspected septic systems.  Ewwww, right?  I was also the septic system program coordinator.

I didn’t think so… but to be fair….

When the ‘buy local’ produce movement gathered steam with the USDA’s Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food Initiative in 2009, I put my regulatory knowledge to use in consulting, educating and writing about food safety regulations and practices, bridging the gap between on-farm Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and retail food regulations.

Since then, the FSMA Produce Safety Rule has been finalized and published.  Now my copywriting and training has shifted to focus on helping produce growers understand and become compliant with the Produce Safety Rule.  I am a Produce Safety Alliance Trainer, and pending Lead Trainer.
