Professional Experience
The first 20 years of my professional life I worked as a Hydrologist, Engineer, and Water Resource Specialist for both public and private institutions protecting human and environmental health by designing and regulating infrastructure to protect water quality around the country. I have worked for the US Forest Service, UW Center for Limnology, and the Lac Du Flambeau Natural Resources. I have authored and directed multiple research and regulation grants for more than one million dollars and published several legal and technical reports in protection of human health and the environment. I also taught community college night classes where I discovered my love for teaching. Last year was my third year teaching at the high school level and I love it.
