Career Experience

My career path has included working in industry, a laboratory, and environmental consulting, with my membership in ASTTBC being a vital part of that path. My consulting work has focused on contaminated sites investigation/remediation. I gained extensive experience working in the field in the early years. After starting a family, I moved into project management, which keeps me home a bit more. Since then I have worked my way up to regional client manager for two major oil companies.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • I grew up being an environmental advocate: starting the school Environmental Group, organizing community cleanups

    It only made sense to make my passion my profession. Environmental Techs were in high demand and I saw that as a great career path.
