I brought my project management and facilitation practice to NHC in 2018 to broaden the services NHC can provide for floodplain management, habitat restoration, and water resources management. The greatest professional joy for me is helping diverse stakeholders work together to achieve mutual goals in those natural environments. Recently, I have been facilitating development of a multi-species aquatic habitat restoration plan for the Chehalis Basin, the second largest watershed in Washington State. I enjoy working at NHC because of the high caliber professionals dedicated to client service, technical excellence, and supporting each other. When I’m not working in natural resources, I’ll likely be recreating outside – hiking or skiing – and finding great inspiration in nature.
