Favorite thing you like about your work:
I enjoy being a member of the DEQ family because I have the opportunity to work alongside engineers, biologists, and other scientists as we work collectively offering our unique expertise to conserving and improving our environment while fostering economic growth through focused research.

Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
I knew nothing about Idaho before attending MOSS but I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made. At MOSS I learned exactly what it meant to work as a team. Our team instantly became more like family. Because I am an hands-on learner, MOSS was the perfect program for me. Who else can say they canoed from one class to the next or went on a week camping trip (by helicopters might I add) with their professors to learn more about the beautiful environment during their graduate program? My experience at MOSS was life changing and completely took me out of my comfort zone. Life is meant for taking chances; if you’ve never been uncomfortable, you’ve never lived.
