2019-2020 Colorado Chapter Election Candidates

Posted: Apr 05, 2019

A ballot will be sent on April 17 with voting ending on April 24.

Vice President – Kelly Schulp, CSP, CRSP

Kelly has been a member of the Colorado Chapter of ASS since the beginning of 2017, and was a member when she lived in Illinois prior to Colorado.

Her love of safety started while working for my current employer, EnPro Industries, back in 2000. I started out in Human Resources, and was given some safety responsibilities. Fortunately, I was able to grow into a full-time career in EHS.

I volunteered with ASSP because as a safety professional I feel it is my responsibility to not just champion safety at work but outside of work as well. Getting involved with ASSP is a great way to support the message of safety within my community.

Kelly has served as the chair for Government Affairs in 2017-2018 and as the Chapter Treasurer this year.

I moved to Colorado from Houston in 2013 and have also lived in Indiana (my birthplace – I’m a Hoosier!), Illinois, Florida, and Arizona. Colorado is my favorite so far, and I hope to stay here a long time.

In her free time she enjoys travel, tennis, golf, spending time with my cat, and reading – I’m always reading something. I look forward to serving the membership in my new role.

Chapter Treasurer – Jennifer Calloway, CHST

Jennifer Calloway is the current Colorado Chapter Secretary, after attending the ASSP Professional Development conference for the past five years, she was inspired to get more involved locally and serve her fellow safe-ty professionals. She feels there are many opportunities for networking and increasing knowledge this year by attending and participating in activities sponsored by the ASSP. It will be an exciting time to be a safety professional in Colorado.

Jennifer has worked for PCL Construction Enterprises, Inc. (corporate office) in the Health, Safety, and Environment department for 12 years. In her current role as HSE supervisor, she supports the HSE director, regional HSE manager, and ten districts across the United States.

Though she didn’t start out in safety, the opportunity presented itself and she grabbed it. Under the mentorship of her management, she has grown in her role and believes in continuous learning. She also believes that it is vitally important to be certified by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. Although certifications are sometimes painful to achieve, it is well worth the time and effort.

Her education credentials include an undergraduate degree is in Human and Community Service from Queens University, Charlotte, NC, a Master of Science degree in Management and Organization from the University of Colorado Denver, with the honored distinction of Outstanding Graduate Student from the Business School, and the Construction Health and Safety Technician certification from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals.

Chapter Secretary – Josh Livingston, MS, CWCP 

Josh and his family moved to Colorado from South Carolina in 2015. In his current role he is the Corporate Director of Environmental, Health and Safety at ACH Foam. He began his involvement with the American Society of Safety Professionals by joining the Augusta, Aiken Chapter and has served as that Chapter’s Vice President and President.

After relocating to Colorado Josh frequently attended meetings and began his involvement with the Colorado Chapter by serving as the Chapter Treasurer in 2017-2018 and has continued to stay engaged in with the board this year, serving as a valuable resource as his time has allowed.
