“I love what I do because I enjoy solving problems, helping our younger staff and getting outside in the sunshine. I look forward to welcoming more enthusiastic and dynamic professionals to our business, collaborating with engaged clients on exciting projects and being able to continue learning and developing my own skills. Applying technical knowledge to better understand natural hazards and how we can reduce their impact on society and infrastructure, is also something I am passionate about”.
