I am a Civil Engineer in Training with Wood PLC's water and wastewater sector.  My career focus is in water sanitation, distribution, preservation, and flood prevention.

In the spring of 2021, I received my Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from Arizona State University. While at ASU, I worked as a teaching assistant for the Civil Engineering Department and as a lifeguard at the Fitness Center.
