What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?
The diversity of landscapes. Just go a few hours in any direction and you're somewhere completely new. We have old growth rain forests, peat bogs, deserts, mountains, estuaries, cities, and agricultural land all in one state.
Why do you work here (at the District)?
Everyone here cares about service. Some of the smartest and most dedicated people are in one place, just wanting to make a difference for their neighbors.
I did research on cleaning surface water using mushrooms.
