Personal Brief

Before joining the WSC team, I spent the first seven years of my career working for a municipality executing water, recycled water and wastewater projects.  During that time, I had the good fortune of working closely with exceptional engineering mentors as well as an amazing group of utility operators who shared many valuable lessons from their perspective in the field.  Operator input has been vital to the success of every project I’ve completed and I will always endeavor to incorporate that perspective into my work.   I have tremendous respect for the challenges and responsibilities faced by water and wastewater operators and my goal is to work collaboratively to develop products that are functional, efficient and operator friendly.

Working for a municipality governed by an elected Board/Council has also given me considerable insight into the process and challenges faced by public employees in trying to execute projects; I look forward to working with clients to efficiently navigate the complex route from start to finish.
