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

Know yourself. Know your end state. And, don’t forget “time” is always a planning element.

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

Anything with links to construction management. This would include NEPA, VCP, PST, NESHAPS, SWP3, and MS4. Contract management experience will evolve while operating in this field which will expand opportunities to switch hit job titles. This potentially develops into a versatility of experience for you to decide the left and right limits of where you prefer to operate.
