What initially attracted you to Trihydro?
I admired that Trihydro has a small company feel, while it is actually a far-reaching company with great resources and diverse opportunities.
What do you do at Trihydro?
I am an assistant project manager on numerous chlorinated solvent sites. My primary duties include field activities (groundwater and soil sampling, overseeing drilling operations, and implementing in-situ injections) and regulatory reporting.
What is your favorite type of project to work on and why?
I enjoy working on projects where you have an opportunity to observe more rapid results, such as projects where injection is the chosen remedy, rather than monitored natural attenuation.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a paleontologist, but I decided I like rocks and groundwater more than fossils.
When did you know you wanted to be a Geologist – how did your passion for your career start?
I have never been a strictly “office work” kind of person. I generally look for an occupation that combines intellectual challenges, travel, and the opportunity to be outdoors. I joined the Army National Guard my junior year of high school and spent a tour oversees following graduation. When I returned from oversees I began college and after one Geology class, I knew that Geology was for me. I felt like being a geologist allowed for work that was diverse and challenging, while presenting opportunities to travel and be outdoors.
What other Trihydro benefits/programs do you find most useful or utilize the most?
I think Trihydro’s Flex Program is a fantastic benefit. It encourages a “work hard, play hard” culture.
