1994 Recipient

Since graduating from Humboldt State University , I have had the opportunity to work within the environmental field. For the first couple of years, I actually worked within my discipline (fisheries) with the California Department of Fish and Game as a scientific aide in Northern California . A job assignment on the Tuscarora Pipeline Project in northeastern California introduced me to environmental compliance inspection work. For the next eight years, I worked across the United States and into Mexico on various large-scale construction projects as an environmental inspector. My background and education in fisheries has helped me significantly, particularly dealing with resource agencies (i.e. understanding their concerns for aquatic resources) and in developing appropriate mitigation and protection measures for water resources affected by these projects.

In 2004 I began my own business, K2 Environmental. I look forward to doing some fisheries work and hope to balance resource work with my compliance inspection services. I have recently moved to Bend , Oregon and look forward to doing lots of “fisheries” work (i.e. fishing) when I'm actually at home. I have been married for five years and have two beautiful daughters.
