Making a Difference Where I was Raised


“Working only 3 miles from where I was raised, I see a lot of people I know when I’m outside the office. Once the pleasantries are exchanged and they learn what I’m doing to try and remedy the negative effects of past mining operations, the response has been overwhelming. Nearly everyone I’ve spoken to has shown extreme gratitude for what we are trying to accomplish. And it’s the interactions with the people who live here and see it every day that make me feel that I’m doing a good thing. This work would be rewarding anywhere, but to be able to do it where I was raised makes it even more fulfilling.”
