I enjoy being able to work with and meet new people on nearly a daily basis. It never gets dull around here.
It may sound silly, but I think the hardest part of my job is trying to take pictures of DRC events and not have them all look the same. It's a constant challenge!
I have a BS in professional writing from Missouri State University. I'm a certified emergency manager through the International Association of Emergency Managers, and also a professional continuity practitioner through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). I'm also halfway through my master's in emergency management through Jacksonville State University.
I grew up near the coast in Maryland and North Carolina. I love being near the water, so getting involved in preserving and protecting our coastal resources was very important to me.
I applied to the contracting firm Genwest Systems, Inc., with hopes of continuing my emergency management career path here in Mobile, Alabama. And here I am!
I recommend volunteering as much as possible in places like zoos, estuariums, or anywhere that strives to protect and conserve our ocean and coasts.
