I am an experienced engineer, successfully working in the fast paced civil and environmental engineering consultant industry. My educational background began in pursuit of an architectural career through three years of study at Northeastern University, but shifted to environmental engineering and science over time as I realized the need for professionals in a field as basic as water and natural resources. I earned a Master's of Environmental Engineering and Science from The Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor's of Civil Engineering from the University of Rhode Island. My occupational experience lies in: stormwater quality and quantity (i.e., flooding); water quality for drinking and recreation; environmental regulations and law, monitoring, and compliance; permitting; site remediation; demolition and construction; wetland restoration; fish passage; dam safety; coastal engineering and resiliency; and remediation design projects. I am technically skilled with AutoCAD, HydroCad, HEC-RAS, and ArcGIS.
Taking part in all phases of a project, from conception to completion, is what keeps me motivated. I enjoy both the desktop research and field data collection that goes into a feasibility study, the cad skills and number crunching required from design, the personal interactions of client, stakeholder, and public meetings, and the problem solving required of onsite construction management.
I take pride in my work; which requires me to take an active role in deciding how our society shapes the environment on which we depend.
