Meet the ENSA Team!




Rob Siegel
Executive Director
Years with ENSA: 11 years

Rob Siegel has over 21 years of hands-on training and skills-development experience as a Work-at-Height professional. Rob got started in this industry when he experienced what can happen when working at height without proper rescue training can lead to a life-changing event. While on a job-site, Rob witnessed a friend and worker fall from a suspended platform to his death. As a result, Rob committed his personal work and life goals to providing worker safety that will bring the worker and friend home safely.

If he had to change his name, he’d change it to Robel Arile. He says that’s his Jeti name!

Valerie started working as a hydraulics system development engineer for Volt Information Sciences in 2005. In 2007, she started in the wind industry by working for DNV GL. She was a recreational rock climber for a long time, so the opportunity to combine engineering and climbing thrilled her. Valerie is a very active person. She’s ran half of a dozen ultra marathons {an ultra marathon is anything longer than a regular marathon} and she’s climbed Mt. Whitney {the highest peak in the lower 48!} She enjoys trail running, yoga {she’s a yoga instructor too!}, hiking, backpacking, and rock climbing. She’s also a huge Cub’s fan.

INSTRUCTORS



Steve Brown
Chief Instructor
Years with ENSA: 10 years

Steve’s been climbing rock, ice, and man made structures for 43 years! He’s been a SPRAT Level 3 for 7 years. Steve lives in a small community in NE Oregon. He absolutely loves teaching, climbing, shooting traditional archery, disc golfing, and being a grand dad, among many other things.


Justin Simpson
Instructor
Years with ENSA: 2 years

Justin started working at heights by building zip lines, doing canopy tours, and high ropes courses a little over 15 years ago. His favorite thing, beyond meeting new, diverse people, is that what he does every day ensures that people get to come home every night and continue to work a cool job every morning. Safety is very important to him. He was at Seneca Rocks, West Virginia when he dropped 50 feet. He was in a wheelchair for 1 ½ months and everyone was worried that he’d never walk again. He realized he could have a positive impact on people’s lives and keep them safe and alive.

If he could trade lives with someone, it’d be Dr. Steve Sillet. He’s the Redwood biologist who discovered the world’s tallest tree and he gets to climb all the world’s tallest trees to study them!


George Rex

George is an accomplished manager with 35+ years of experience as a director in various fields that include: Cardio-Pulmonary Medicine, Manufacturing of Safety & Rescue Equipment, and a

Angie is currently learning to ride an off-road unicycle and white water kayak!


Kim McCormack
Instructor
Years with ENSA: < 1 year

One of Kim’s passions is rock climbing – it changed her life. Rock climbing gave Kim self confidence and taught her various skills to move safely on the rock and rescue others. Kim had a knack for teaching others the skills that she so highly valued. When the opportunity to train wind techs how to be safe and rescue each other came along, she grabbed it! She’s super excited to be working in an environment where she’s constantly learning new things, and able to teach life-saving skills at the same time.


April Vollm
Instructor
Years with ENSA: < 1 year

April has a varied background, which includes time in the Air Force as a loadmaster on a C-130 cargo aircraft and as a performer with Air Force Entertainment (“Troops Entertaining Troops”). After she left the Air Force, she continued her work in performing, touring with Ringling Bros. as a clown, where she first became interested in aerial arts. This led to the national tour of her one-woman show, entertaining kits and encouraging them to move and exercise with the use of juggling, jump roping, and aerial acrobatics. Most recently, she challenged herself as a tower climber, working to install home internet systems, LTE, and UTMS.


Richard Massiah
