I spent a year working with the WDFW, which was fun and exciting, but I wanted a little bit more variety.

The people that I work with, the people I get to meet, and all the places I have been able to see. More than anything else, helping people solve problems and giving them the peace of mind knowing everything is getting taken care of.

My willingness to go into dark spaces not knowing what could be in there; (otters are the worst!) I have an eye for detail and pride myself on overcoming most obstacles I encounter by thinking outside the box and creating what is needed to make sure every situation is addressed correctly.
