Ohio University B.S. Geology '11, Licensed Professional Geologist by the State of Kentucky

I grew up on a small farm in Ashland County, Ohio, and moved to Athens to attend Ohio University in 2007. I switched my focus from civil engineering to geology after taking Dr. Springer’s Geology for Engineers class. So, I have Dr. Springer to thank (blame) for saving me from a boring infrastructure career. I earned my B.S. in Environmental Geology from Ohio University in 2011. 

After receiving my degree, I started my career as a staff geologist at BJAAM Environmental, Inc. in Canal Fulton, Ohio. In 2015, I moved to Columbus, Ohio, and started my employment at Weaver Consultants Group, where I still work today as a Project Manager. As an environmental consultant, I am involved with industrial site assessment, investigation, and remediation of subsurface soil and groundwater. I credit my career success to the department faculty and the fundamentals I learned at Ohio University. As a member of the Alumni Advisory Board, I hope to give back to the department by assisting students and new alumni find successful careers.       

Aside from work, I enjoy playing soccer, skiing, running ultras, and the Browns beating the Steelers.
