July 2022 saw the retirement of three longtime EHS staff members. Occupational Health and Safety Specialist Dennis Demers, Program Support Specialist Diane Bolduc and EHS Director Terri Dominguez. Dennis joined the department in 2002 conducting safety inspections and annual respirator fit testing. Diane has been with the department since 2004 supporting our training and outreach programs and conducting ergonomic assessments. Terri began her career at UConn in 1992 when she was hired as the Occupational Health and Safety Manager. She held this position until 2010 when she was appointed as the Manager of Occupational Health and Safety and EHS Administrative Services. In 2015 Terri was appointed as the Interim Director of Environmental Health and Safety, becoming permanent in 2016. We thank them for their steadfast dedication and camaraderie over the years and wish them all the best in their retirement.
Thankfully, they were all amenable to staying on beyond their official retirement date to help us with the transition.
