I love to be outdoors. I have always enjoyed the sense of accomplishment after a long hike or a day of trail riding on my mountain bike.
What is your chosen discipline (engineering, planning, surveying, etc)? Why do you love it?
Engineering. I love it because the engineering industry is ever-changing. We are constantly looking for ways to do things better, and there are always opportunities to learn more.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would love to travel around Europe and get to see many of the local areas and historical landmarks!
What’s one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important?
I am beginning to study for my PE exam. After recently completing the FE exam, this is the next step to becoming a licensed engineer.
