At a very basic level, the environment and industry provide for the resources we ultimately rely on. These include economic goods, clean water and air, and habitat that supports the awesome Pacific Northwest ecology. As an environmental scientist, I get to work on how we best meet the economic and environmental goals that satisfy our needs. I work on sites all over the Pacific Northwest, all of which have unique challenges and opportunities. I enjoy working with varying industries or organizations, in different geographies, with all types of folks. This keeps it interesting, and I always get to learn new things.
