Why did you choose this particular line of work?
"It was an easy choice for me, I’ve always had a deep respect and reverence for nature. Working for DMCC allows me to continue to learn and interact with the natural world in ways that I could not experience in any other line of work."

What do you like most about your job?
"Before working for the county I was primarily involved with teaching adults and college students about cultural and natural preservation. Working with the county I get to see that spark for the natural world ignite and grow in our younger students, that’s really exciting and fun to be a part of."
