    • The ability to solve technical problems for a client is one of the most satisfying aspects of my role. By matching our engineering, environmental and management expertise to their needs, we achieve positive project outcomes.

    • I enjoy adventure travel, winter downhill skiing, and focused time with our family. With young grandchildren, the ability to foster in them a love of the outdoors and a curiosity and love of nature has been a joy as they explore and examine the world around them.
