    I hope to provide citizens of this County a cohesive means of incorporating functionality with preservation of natural resources that is both fun and exciting.  Previous experience includes toxicological studies with the USGS and environmental work in the Oil and Gas Industry.  Being a steward to the environment has been a passion since a young age and will always be incorporated as some part of my life.  Although my career path has taken a shift to the financial industry; being able to help others through my work is paramount.  I look forward to be a positive and influential member in this community.
