The “work hard, play hard” mentality was apparent in my first interview and I knew Trihydro would provide me with the challenge I was looking for.

I've always had a healthy curiosity about science and “how things work”. As a child, when I wasn’t conducting garage and sandbox experiments, you would most likely find me with a book in tow. During summer break I would spend a lot of time in the mountains, and spent countless hours hiking, fishing, and biking.

When I started college, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to study physics or engineering. During freshman orientation, I noticed that engineering seemed to be more people and solution focused.  I have always enjoyed working with people, and became heavily involved in student government and taught entry level engineers during graduate school. I ultimately received my Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and then my Master’s degree in environmental engineering. Born and raised in Wyoming, I’ve always spent a great deal of my free time in the outdoors and I wanted to do something that benefited the environment.

I was looking for an opportunity to make a difference with a company when my master’s advisor recommended I apply at Trihydro. The “work hard, play hard” mentality was apparent in my first interview and I knew Trihydro would provide me with the challenge I was looking for. I’ve been with the company for over nineteen (19) years, and have been fortunate enough to help Trihydro grow from a small firm of 42 to over 400. I currently serve as the Chief Development Officer of the Company, and help to guide and direct the strategic vision for the Company.  Additionally, I oversee the Business Development and Marketing Business Unit, and my team focuses on helping to understand the needs of clients in order to provide solutions and form long-term business relationships. Additionally, we are charged with promoting the Trihydro “Brand” through a variety of marketing and media channels.

Outside Trihydro, I have a wonderful family and we enjoy our time hiking trails, fishing, and exploring the Wyoming back country.  Additionally, I like the challenge of competing in trail races and ultra-marathons. You really get to know yourself when every part of your body is at its weakest and ready to give up, but your mind is at its peak telling you something different. I’ve learned that the things that truly matter in life are often times the most difficult, but through that challenge comes the greatest growth, satisfaction, and sense of accomplishment.

Our People Matter

Trihydro’s employees are its most valuable assets. We invest in employee development—and encourage an open, team-oriented, informal atmosphere that fosters employee well-being.

We are a team that builds strong client relationships founded on hard work and integrity. We seek talented, motivated professionals committed to doing the same.
