Environmental Consultant

1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
My experience at Grand Valley State University equipped me with the professional skills to adapt my Geology degree to an environmental career in my home state of Michigan. After graduating, I briefly gained work experience at a small water sampling company based in Traverse City before landing a position as a lab technician at the University of Michigan Earth & Environmental Sciences department. I currently work as an environmental consultant with a mid-size company based in the Detroit area.

2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
I made some great friends and worked with some superb professors during my time at GVSU. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the classes that I took, my favorite memory at GVSU was attending the sporting events like soccer games and football tailgates with friends. GVSU has some top-notch athletic programs, and I return to GVSU to cheer on my team as often as I can!

3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Excelling in your career requires working with people. Earning a degree at a liberal arts college is incredibly valuable because it equips you with the vocabulary to communicate with others effectively.

4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand Valley experience.
Challenging, Rewarding, and Fun!

5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
I would like to improve the quality of life for everyone through environmental stewardship and advocacy, starting with my local community!
