What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?
The PNW is beautiful and rich with natural resources. The mild climate here and the diverse landscapes make me realize how lucky we are to live in such a special place. I typically enjoy experiencing our state through hiking, camping, and canoeing.
Why do you work here (at the District)?
I enjoy working with landowners on a local scale to help improve and prepare our creeks and rivers for an ever increasing population and to combat climate change.
I like chocolate!
