What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
The lab I worked at in college assisted Trihydro on a few projects. I was able to see first-hand how happy and relaxed, yet extremely efficient and knowledgeable the employees at Trihydro were before even applying for a job.
What do you do at Trihydro?
I work in the Air and Process Services Compliance group, so I typically verify and maintain compliance practices for our petroleum clients with state and federal air regulations and permits.
What do you like best about working at Trihydro?
I love Trihydro’s work-life balance mentality. It is comforting to know that a co-worker or boss understands the importance of spending the right amount of time with friends and family, as well as getting your work done.
What is your favorite type of project to work on and why?
I enjoy projects that include a bit of field work and also include office work or reports. These projects give me a sense of accomplishment because I get to work on and finish the project until the end.
When did you know you wanted to be an environmental engineer – how did your passion for your career start?
I always love being outdoors and wanted to know everything about the environment, which spurred my love for science (especially biology and ecology). I started an environmental club at my high school and helped my school with recycling and using ‘green’ materials. It was also in high school that I realized that I was good at math and decided that a career path that joined my skills and interests (math and science) would be a perfect match for me.
What is a fun fact about you?
I am a “bionic woman”; I had a spinal fusion from my L3 to C5 vertebrae (basically my whole back) when I was 15 years old. It rarely bothers me and I can still do back-flips on the trampoline.
