During my tenure as a Community Planner with the State of Tennessee, Department of Economic and Community Development, Local Planning Assistance Office, I served as the professional planning staff to Chief Executive Officers, planning commissions and boards of zoning appeals of local municipalities within assigned contracts (City of Fayetteville, City of Pulaski, Town of Petersburg, Town of Estill Springs, City of Chapel Hill, TN and Lincoln County, TN. I served as the program administrator for FEMA's NFIP within the assigned communities. I also developed land use and transportation plans, community facilities plans, public improvement programs and capital budgets. I provided recommendations on development proposals to assure compliance with local, state and federal regulations when developing environmental areas. I prepared, implemented and monitored an annual planning work program to address local development goals and issues. I attended regular night meetings and provided technical assistance to the general public, local developers, surveyors and engineers on development projects. I prepared technical reports, strategic plans, regulations and ordinances. I evaluated development projects for sensitive environmental hazards to insure federal, state and local government compliance. I provided support and information in the preparation of community application for grants-in-aid and I prepared and presented educational materials to local community leaders, officials and the general public. I am adept at planning policy research while using various statistical approaches in collecting and interpreting data for reporting purposes.
