Q: What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
A: I would say strong mentorship for young engineers, great people to work with, flexible working environment, and the stability of the company. Q: What characteristics of Trihydro do you consider unique/noteworthy?
A: We have a small company feel with the resources of a bigger firm. Trihydro is conscientious about smart growth, open-minded about continually improving its processes and systems to accommodate new ideas, while staying true to its roots. Q: How would you describe the office culture in your location?
A: The Golden office is friendly, relaxed, and collaborative. Q: Describe your most interesting or exciting day and/or experience on the job.
A: I’ve had some very exciting meetings with stakeholders that came to the table with diverse technical opinions. Some of my favorite days on the job have been working collaboratively with other technical folks to reach a consensus during these meetings. At one such a meeting, we were presenting our concerns about a proposed remediation strategy for cleanup of a large former military base in California. After really digging into the details of the strategy, we were able to pin point some suggested changes to the technical approach that resulted in significant increases to the anticipated 10 year costs for the site. It felt great to be able to participate in a meaningful way and make a difference on the project. Q: What opportunities have stemmed from your experience at Trihydro?
A: Presenting at the Battle Remediation of Chlorinated Solvents Conference; investigating a PCE groundwater plume within Jackson Hole, WY; exposure to multiple regulatory environments (RCRA, VRP, Superfund/CERCLA, Brownfields); and working with a wide range of experts (ecology, statistics, risk assessment, data validation). Q: How has the company contributed to your personal and professional growth?
A: Through working under professional engineers, Trihydro has given me the opportunity to get my professional engineering license. Since the company has a diverse and stable client base, I’ve also been able to work on a variety of technically interesting projects instead of just one big project.
