New Think Blue Maine Ducky ad
Welcome to 2020 and the 54th year of MEWEA! It is an honor to be representing this association and all the dedicated stewards of the entire clean water industry. Combined, all of us have made an enormous impact on clean water in the State of Maine. It remains a great feeling going to work every day, knowing that each one of us contributes to the high quality waterways that our home state is nationally renowned for.
I’ve been with Wright-Pierce for the past 5 years, with previous work at other engineering consultants, as well as brief stints in landscaping, and surveying streams for the US Forest Service. Through those experiences, my time in the clean water industry has allowed me to learn and see quite a few different work environments. I’m fortunate to have gotten involved in NYWEA, New York’s WEF affiliate, in college and served as Student Chapter President for 3 years, then serving for the Eastern NY Young Professionals Chair following college.
Since returning to Maine in 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to again serve as the Young Professionals chair, this time for MEWEA, and then get further involved on the executive board. I look forward to bringing those experiences to the association, while relying on the substantial support from the executive board’s broad backgrounds.
