IAMU welcomes new staff member Edith Hodgell as our Regional Safety Coordinator for the newly formed Safety Group North Central.  Edith started her position on July 20th and has a background in safety, food safety, and chemical handling.

She is well versed in many of the challenges our members face, including fall protection, confined space entry, LOTO, respiratory protection and silica.  She has lived in Iowa her entire life and is a self-described “farm kid.” Edith currently lives in north west Iowa (Pocahontas) and went to college in NE Iowa (Fayette – Upper Iowa University), and is moving to north central Iowa (tbd), so she is looking forward to getting out to meet with all of her clients in the area she drove thru all those times. With customer service skills, regulation interpretation knowledge, and a little dose of fun, we feel that Edith will be an asset in this position.

Jackie has lived in Iowa for 28 years, she enjoys traveling, riding bicycles, and spending time with her family and friends.
