What is your favorite part of your job? What really gets me excited is when we put our heads together as a team to come up with problem-solving solutions for our clients—whether that be how to treat their water, improve operations or address regulatory requirements. It excites me to know that I’m making a difference in the lives of our clients and the communities they serve.
How do you think clients might describe you? High-energy, technically driven, collaborative, responsive, and willing to go the extra mile.
What’s something that you like to do on a day off? I love spending time with my two daughters. We’ll go to the park, the bowling alley, the pool…anything that involves getting away from computers and cell phones and just being together.
What are your 3 non-work passions? I really enjoy challenging myself and pushing the limits, so I’d say sports is one of my biggest passions: basketball, volleyball, soccer, swimming, running. Spending time with my family and friends is another big passion of mine. And just being active in general—I’m high-energy so you'll never find me sitting on the couch and watching TV. I’m always doing something that gets me moving.
