“Growing up in Montana, I learned to appreciate the outdoors, which led me to pursue a career in environmental engineering. Early in my career, I was lucky to work with a mentor who cultivated my interest in legacy and abandoned mines. I love working in the mining industry; the people are genuine, generous, and focused on bringing value to our society and our future.”
