"Networking is key. Build a broad and deep early in your career. There will be ‘bumps’ along the way in your career (count on it) but a positive attitude and a good network will help overcome those bumps. Persevere, push forward, and always endeavor to do your best in the service of others."

Where has your degree taken you?

Central Asia for the World Bank and FAO (water resources management capacity building in the post-Soviet region which is severely overallocated and ripe with resource conflicts in a transboundary setting.) Current project in West Indies on the island of Barbuda (environmental impact assessment - focused on water resources – in a karst geologic setting.)

How do you feel your experience, specifically as an SES/geology student at OSU, prepared you for your career or life in general?

Dr. Bair gave me a foundation in the quantitative and practical field methods on hydrogeology – knowledge which got me started in the water resources field. (Thank you Dr. Bair)

What is your favorite memory as a student?

Field camp in Utah! Dr. Elliott was indefatigable and inspiring. Field trip to Mammoth Cave, Kentucky

What advice do you have for current and future students?

1) Networking is key. Build a broad and deep early in your career. There will be ‘bumps’ along the way in your career (count on it) but a positive attitude and a good network will help overcome those bumps. Persevere, push forward, and always endeavor to do your best in the service of others. 

2) Get involved with a leading professional organization, and volunteer for committees (this is a great way to network and learn).
