The mentoring luncheon will feature a brief talk by Ramona Trovato followed by questions and discussion.

Ramona Trovato has a long and productive history with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). She has been the force behind numerous new, diverse, unique and ground breaking Agency efforts, including promoting and protecting children’s environmental health, developing radioactive waste management solutions for clean-up at nuclear weapons sites, and leading efforts to create a more timely, relevant, and responsive research and development program for EPA. In each case her successes were grounded in an unwavering belief in public service and what it stands for—providing excellent service and care to the citizens of the United States. Because of her leadership abilities, people skills, policy and political experience, science background, limitless energy and unwavering ability to stay focused and deliver meaningful results, Ramona has been asked to serve in various leadership positions across EPA programs, including: children’s health, water, indoor air, radiation, information management & technology, land revitalization and reuse, and research and development. Her broad knowledge and experience, her creativity and perseverance, and her adaptability and resilience all contribute to her ability to find solutions to environmental and public health challenges, while never losing sight of the associated challenges also facing our nation.

Ramona is committed to work with others within and outside the Agency. She firmly believes that none of us can be successful alone and that contributions made at a national level can only be accomplished through the dedication and effort of many people. To that end, Ramona would like to recognize her colleagues in government (federal, state, and local), non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and academia for their willingness to work together to solve challenging issues of national significance. Due to their commitment, time, and expertise, the federal government is able to find better solutions.

Ramona is committed to public service and the people of our country. She feels blessed to have had the opportunity to serve.

Today, after retiring from federal service (for the second time), Ramona is enjoying time with her family, boating on the Chesapeake Bay, and providing management consulting and coaching services.
