Lea has three years of experience within the fire protection industry.

Her Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute lends to her work in reviewing and developing solutions for detailed fire alarm and detection system designs. Lea has been assisting our office in developing comprehensive code reports, performing architectural and engineering drawing reviews for conformance with the applicable codes and standards, and performing life safety assessments for many of our hospital clients. She also received a Master of Science in Fire Protection Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Sandra has more than 10 years of experience in corporate accounting, and her enthusiasm and organizational skills are key components to Code Red Consultants’ growing success. Prior to joining the firm, Sandra was a senior accountant at Lewa-Nikkiso, an international process technology firm in Holliston, Mass.

Sandra is a graduate of Merrimack College holding a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting.
Janna has four years of experience in fire protection and specializes in hazardous materials. Her background in chemistry and knowledge of hazardous materials-related codes and standards has enabled her to dive into several laboratory and industrial projects, assisting with chemical analyses and design approaches for chemical facilities. Prior to joining Code Red Consultants, Janna was a staff liaison at NFPA, primarily responsible for overseeing documents involving flammable and combustible liquids. She has a Master of Science in Fire Protection Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Virginia.

He has taught classes on flammable liquid firefighting and fuel systems across the northeastern U.S. for nearly a decade. He was also a principal member of two NFPA technical committees, including serving as the Chair of the Aircraft Fuel Servicing Technical Committee.
