Meet a Water Professional...

What are your interests outside of work?  

I am usually engaged in various activities with my family.  I also try to catch up on my reading whenever time is available.

Why do you “work for water?” What do you love about the job? 

I knew about water treatment when I was 6 or 7 because my Dad was a civil engineering contractor who built treatment plants and took me to his various job sites. The awareness about the importance of water for public health and the environment came early to me. Working at a utility is a unique opportunity because what you do positively impacts the environment on a daily basis. Every day presents new opportunities and I get a great deal of satisfaction from the creative aspects of my job.
