“In my early life post high school, I was coincidentally exposed to this field and became a Field Technician and Lab Manager on a few multi-million dollar highway projects. While I enjoyed being on-site and working hands-on to create the infrastructure people access every day, I quickly realized my true passion was in the engineering behind it all. So, I set forth in my goal to become an engineer and serve the public. After four years had passed, I embarked on my journey to the next opportunity which brought me to the University of Arizona where I graduated as an engineer in 1985."
