Ms. Rudisill, as Environmental Health and Safety Manager for Aerojet, then Northrop Grumman, achieved certification for VPP and ISO 14001. Subsequent annual audits were hugely successful with no major findings and seldom any minor findings. She also performed as a Special Team Member with Cal-OSHA in a number of VPP certification audits. Additionally, she acted as a mentor to several companies who were seeking VPP certification.
