I am a Certified Industrial Hygienist (C.I.H.) which is the engineering discipline most focused upon determining if a building is contaminated with mold. After all, there is mold everywhere but there is not mold contamination everywhere. A C.I.H. is the professional that is supposed to determine if a building is contaminated with mold. I addition, I have maintained a residential builder license in the State of Michigan since 1990. This is because a physician who is determining if a person has become ill due to a building must have an understanding how buildings should be built and maintained. In addition to have been an expert in many mold cases, I have also served as a trial attorney in mold cases including having represented a daughter of a former United States Secretary of State.
