Q: What is one of your most exciting projects at EnviroForensics?
A: I’ve had the chance to work on many interesting and exciting projects while I’ve been here at EnviroForensics. One of the most interesting projects involves contamination within the bedrock, which is unique in Indiana since soil thicknesses in the state are usually 50-500 feet thick generally slowing down or stopping contaminants before they can even migrate to the surface of the bedrock much less infiltrate the bedrock.

Q: What is your life like outside of EnviroForensics?
A: I enjoy cooking, spending time outdoors, reading/listening to audiobooks, and spending time with my boyfriend. When the weather is nice, I enjoy going to belegarth, foam sword fighting, practices.
