What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
I had worked for both very small and very large environmental consulting firms in the past and the privately-held/family-oriented atmosphere of Trihydro appealed to me. The consistent but measured growth indicated good planning and stability.
What do you do at Trihydro?
I am a Senior Project Manager responsible for managing small and large investigation and remediation projects. I also provide risk assessment technical support services.
Describe your most interesting or exciting day and/or experience on the job.
The most interesting day I have had included leading a major regulatory agency meeting for one of Trihydro’s top clients and successfully negotiating work approvals from the agency. Partnering with our clients to convey and build a team approach with the agency, the client, and Trihydro fits right in with Trihydro’s overall project approach.
What do you like best about working at Trihydro?
I like the balance of employees we have as a company. There are a lot of people with technical experience and others who are new to the industry that have good ideas and initiative, and bring fresh perspectives to our projects.
What is your favorite type of project to work on and why?
My favorite type of project is one that requires a multi-disciplinary approach to solving a problem. Because my background has included a wide array of technical disciplines and project phases (investigation and remediation projects, as well as redevelopment projects requiring management of residual chemicals in the subsurface), I excel at putting all of the project pieces together to bring an efficient solution to a project.
When did you know you wanted to manage environmental projects – how did your passion for your career start?
I originally started in the environmental industry working at an analytical laboratory at a liquid hazardous waste treatment facility. While I was very good at laboratory work, I realized I was very effective at leading the laboratory personnel while solving problems associated with waste acceptance and treatment at the facility. I eventually ended up in environmental consulting, where problem solving is a large portion of what our clients want and need.
What is a fun fact about you?
I do public address announcing, mix walk-up music, and music for between innings for my son’s baseball team.
