My two main inspirations for becoming an environmental engineer are my family and a passion for improving quality of life for others. My grandfather and aunt are both engineers and their intelligence, compassion, and love of engineering is what drew me into this field. Hussey Gay Bell drew me in with the easy-going and personable people who work here. I started at Hussey Gay Bell in January of 2020 and I have found a fun-loving community of engineers that have that same passion I saw from my family growing up. Since being here, I have gotten to work on projects involving wastewater treatment facilities and water distribution systems, and had the privilege to play a small role in providing clean water for people in the Columbia area. I have learned an incredible amount from the leaders here – they are great teachers and kind people. I can say, without a doubt, that I made the right decision when I chose Hussey Gay Bell and am proud to be a part of such a great company.
