Welcome to my website! I am a professional in the environmental sector. My focus is in water quality with broader interests in environmental policy and environmental issues. I have approximately four years of professional experience as an environmental specialist and environmental educator. I gained my professional experience by serving as an AmeriCorps Water Quality Team Member in Knoxville, TN, interning in the environmental compliance division of a private consulting agency, and completing graduate studies focusing in physical geography and researching local water quality.
.I am currently serving as a regional projects director for Ozarks Water Watch overseeing watershed protection programs in the Upper White River Basin of Arkansas. I have successfully developed graduate research studying phosphorus in streambed sediments, led a community Adopt-A-Watershed Program, and served as a community leader for watershed protection. I actively seek opportunities for engagement on issues of geography and water quality.
