“Many of my peers ask me how I know so much about the National Park Service’s history, or communication techniques, or creating 'creative graphics' in presentations. I proudly tell them that it was part of my education at the University of Idaho. The entire RRT faculty truly opened my eyes and mind. They taught me many things that I could list out as a litany of technical achievements, most of which I still use today. But what the RRT faculty also shared with me was a passion about our natural resources and how to inspire others to preserve them.”
