What is your hometown? Sheboygan, Wisconsin
I enjoy spending time outdoors, adventuring in the wilderness with my husband and dogs.
? Ever since I can remember, water has been integral in my life. I grew up near Lake Michigan and spent summers with my family on lakes in northern Wisconsin. The connection with water carried into adulthood, and that is what drew me to the water resources field. I have been working in the industry for 8 years.
Is there a particular project or program that you have worked on or are working on right now that you would like to tell us about? My colleagues and I are working with the CWCB on the Basin Implementation Plan and Water Plan Updates. This is an exciting time across the state, where basin roundtables, local experts and stakeholders are collaborating to plan for our water’s future.
The coronavirus disruption and subsequent budgetary implications will be a challenge for water users to navigate as we enter this uncertain future.
AWRA-Colorado provides me with the opportunity to network and stay informed about the industry while learning about an array of water resources topics.
