About LMMA

Land & Mineral Management of Appalachia, LLC (LMMA) was formed in 2010. My goal of forming LMMA was to be able to assist property owners with managing their properties, whether they were dealing with a gas company or pipeline company throughout the Appalachian region. It is hard to believe that 5 years have passed but looking back and realizing I have worked with hundreds and talked to thousands of mineral and surface owners and helped guide them through this process that is Natural Gas, I have the feeling of satisfaction of a job well done.

I am pleased that you have decided to visit our website. In order that you may get to know me a little better I have written a brief summary of my work experience.

Prior to starting and operating LMMA, I worked for five (5) years at a land management company in the Charleston, West Virginia area. My responsibilities included but were not limited to acquisition, leasing and management of oil and gas properties as well as developing new business opportunities. I worked for the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (WV DHHR) from 2002 to 2005. In this position I managed the water and wastewater Training and Certification program. This program is responsible for the testing and certification of all water and wastewater operators in the State of West Virginia. From 2001 through 2002 I owned a small business called Compliance Solutions, LLC. I consulted with the Oil and Gas Industry specializing in leasing properties, seismic permitting and courthouse research as well as assisting the oil and gas industry with understanding and complying with oil, gas and environmental law. From 1999 to 2001 I worked for Weavertown Environmental Group. In this position I was responsible for marketing and account management in a multi-state region providing environmental remediation services, site assessment services, occupational exposure risk analysis and employee education opportunities for chemical, oil & gas, industrial and manufacturing entities.

From 1986 through 1999 I worked for the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection (WVDEP), Office of Oil & Gas. In this position I was responsible for the management of the office work processes for the Office of Oil & Gas. I had primary responsibility for the WVDEP Spill Response System, coordinating all spill response activities with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U. S. Coast Guard and the WVDEP Inspectors. I managed the Abandoned Well Cooperative Agreement, which included budgetary and project control. I was the division representative at legal and inquiry stage proceedings for environmental issues for the Office of Oil & Gas. I received, evaluated, and coordinated response and remedial action for all citizen complaints filed with the Office of Oil & Gas. I developed and implemented the media campaign for public awareness of the abandoned well eradication program. I had direct supervision of the bonding and bond forfeiture programs for the Office of Oil & Gas. I had direct supervision of departmental support staff. I conducted internal analysis of management practices, including identification and implementation of process improvements and had direct management responsibilities of the compliance and enforcement section of the Office of Oil & Gas.
