The most important thing is to have fun.

Growing up in Upstate New York, I enjoyed hiking in the Adirondacks, playing sports and just spending time outdoors.

I played just about every sport but finally settled upon Track and Field. This carried me to Lehigh University where I studied Earth and Environmental Science and competed as a student athlete. Initially, I was a chemistry major; however, after taking an earth science course as an elective my freshman year, I was hooked and knew that pursuing a degree in Earth and Environmental Science was right for me.

After graduation, I spent the summer hiking a long section of the Appalachian Trail before joining BSTI. The two months I spent hiking (nearly 800 miles) solidified my passion for the outdoors and the environment, and made me sure that I wanted to work in the field of environmental consulting. At BSTI, I have the chance to continue to be involved with the environment through a variety of field activities, data analysis and report writing.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending my time camping, hiking and running or watching sports, particularly my favorite soccer team, Liverpool.
