What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
The management philosophy of balancing hard work and dedication with nurturing employee health and well-being is demonstrated daily in word and deed. Trihydro has embraced the Code of the West as a way to define our work and our interactions. The Code includes references to courage, fairness, commitment, achievement, and work pride. The vast majority of personnel that I have met from senior management on down, are enthusiastic, supportive, highly talented, and team spirited.

I’m a Business Development Leader, working with the entire team to grow our client base and expand our services throughout the Southeastern US. I work closely with our marketing department, our operations leadership, our new and existing clients, and my fellow business development personnel.
Describe your most interesting or exciting day and/or experience on the job.
My first day was absolutely the most exciting and packed with surprises. The warm welcome I received upon arrival in Laramie, and support received from every person I met throughout my orientation was amazing. The first day included an enthusiastic welcome teleconference where I was introduced to associates distributed across the country.
What do you like best about working at Trihydro?
The people – all of them. The entire team is amazing. They have assembled an incredible team of talented, dedicated, competent, friendly, and supportive personnel.
What is your favorite type of project to work on and why?
My favorite type of project is risk-based environmental remediation. Moving a project through assessment, risk assessment, and risk-based cleanups is a complex effort that ultimately benefits both our client and the environment by using a logical, practical, and economic approach to address cleanup concerns. Typically, these types of projects require more engagement with stakeholders and negotiations to define site-specific endpoint objectives.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I’ve always enjoyed graphic art and during my teen years I considered becoming an architect. My parents were both in real estate, so through their land development activities, I also gained experience in construction and landscaping. I also enjoyed travel and was fascinated with maps and exploring new places. My fascination with maps and drawing ultimately led me toward a college major in Geography with emphasis in physical geography and cartography.
What is a fun fact about you?
I grew up in South Florida, spending a great deal of time fishing, water skiing, and enjoying the beach. My parents owned a small business and through their example, I learned how to balance recreation with self-motivated work dedication.
In my free time, I donate time to church and community service work, including leadership development for fellow volunteers.
I am an avid reader, I enjoy fishing, sailing, travel, and of course rock collecting.
