How I can help

My professional background

I am a retired health inspector. I worked for 34 years in various government agencies. My specialty was public safety in food, pools and lodging. I have experience working with various government agencies and understand what each agency does. I have worked extensively with zoning, building fire and safety, plumbing and mechanical trades in construction and code requirements. I have coached hundreds to thousands of people in requirements for setting up a food operation permanently or temporarily. I have extensive knowledge of the Uniform Food Code used throughout the US.


How to work with me

What I can offer

The basic requirements of licensing a food establishment. Directions and steps in getting started. What government agencies need to be involved.

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

Detailed plans for food service.
