    • I work on multidisciplinary water and wastewater treatment and distribution projects. I enjoy what I do because each project is different and has its own unique challenges.

    • In the winter, I am out skiing as much as I can be and in the summer I enjoy hiking, biking, running and trying to encourage my husband to keep up.
