I am a professional geologist, retired from State service, and now own my own environmental consulting business. My professional career has taken me from soil and groundwater investigations for nuclear power plants, dams, roads, buildings and land development, to managing cleanup projects for state environmental agencies and my own consulting firm. I have also been a College instructor of geology and Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing Leader. My hobbies are camping, reading, art projects, growing berries, taking care of a caique (parrot), and quilting. I am interested in a broad range of topics and enjoy sharing information with others. I follow through.
