Member at Large – Karma Reavis, CSP

Safety is a passion. Part of that includes learning and sharing new ideas or laws. Karma is able to find interesting speakers on just about any topic. She is happy to give another year to the Chapter as Chair.

Karma has been involved with Safety for over 25 years. Most of that time was spent as the Human Resources Manager too. Karma was previously with Samson as the Corporate SH&E Coordinator. This includes responsibility for a plant in Louisiana as well. It means she has a true generalist background.
