Women in Maritime Operations (WIMOs) recognized Cooper Consolidated’s Kenya Nixon as its August “Member of the Month”! Kenya worked as an EMT for eight years and spent 13 years as a Safety Manager or Director in construction, heavy civil, and utilities before joining the maritime industry in 2018.
Her passion for safety is forefront in everything she does, from training others in first aid to implementing Cooper Consolidated’s goal of “Do No Harm”. Kenya’s role is to coordinate all loss and accident investigations within the company’s stevedoring division. She believes “education should never stop” and is currently preparing for the CSP exam through the Board of Certified Safety Professionals and is exploring Master’s degrees in occupational safety.
WIMOs was founded in 2017 to bring together women working in operations roles within the maritime industry. In addition to networking opportunities, WIMOs also provides women opportunities for additional training and volunteer work.
