What advise would you give to the current Aggies interested in entering environmental industry? 

The field of environmental management is exceptionally broad. My advice as a young professional is to be open-minded. Let your ambition and curiosity help define the course of your career. Whether exploring options in government, academia, consulting or industry, there is a part to play and collaborative relationships to develop. Remain open to new ideas and new ways to solve problems.

If you were entering the environmental industry today, what area would you pursue? Why?

To me, some of the more interesting trend lines in environmental management center around decarbonization and the energy transition – which also require a macro-level understanding of economics and geopolitics. In addition, there is an emerging need for professionals to frame sustainability management portfolios and disclosure standards.
