Growing up in rural Skagit Valley within a very outdoorsy family I developed a profoundly personal connection to the land and waters of the Pacific Northwest. I feel very fortunate to have landed in a like-minded “family” at Herrera as a Project Scientist in the Water Group, working on a diverse range of projects that contribute to helping our communities live and grow sustainably with these lands and waters.
