Like many other environmental scientists, my childhood was spent romping around swamps, woods, meadows and lakeshores, asking “why?”. I’m so thankful and excited to continue that trend at Herrera. With a passion for aquatic sciences, I now work on various stormwater, water quality, and lake management projects. Outside of work, I spend most of my time playing with my dog (Delta), but I also enjoy exploring new parks, spending time with friends, and making things.

M.S. Environmental Science, Washington State University-Vancouver
