How did you get into EHS?

Dr. Seuss!  In my childhood, the plight of the Lorax struck my EHS chord. "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."  That, and my degree from CSU.

How long have you worked at your current institution?

3 years

Best career advice?

Work hard to keep igniting your passion for what you love to do.  Say no when things don't work.
