I am also responsible for managing our Global Waste Stewardship Program, ensuring we have responsible, sustainable waste disposal practices.|

||Regulations are constantly changing around the world. It can be challenging to stay current on these developments and ensure we create and implement sustainable management systems to comply with these new regulations. However, this challenge is what I really enjoy about my work. It has allowed me to work with great teams of people around the world, share ideas from different perspectives, and develop creative ideas to help the company be successful.|

There are so many talented people who are willing to share their experiences and work hard together to accomplish a goal. It is very energizing working on teams with people who are so dedicated! Also, the work at PPG is always challenging and different, so I’m constantly learning and stretching myself.
