Amy splits her time between natural resources and environmental projects, but no matter what she’s doing, she’s making the world a little bit better. She monitors environmental cleanup efforts to ensure that contaminants like lead and arsenic are cleaned up appropriately, designs remediation plans, prepares CAD data, and performs biological assessments and other fieldwork.
“I have always wanted to work outdoors and make a difference in the environmental sector,” Amy says, “but the issue became real to me when I noticed the change in fish and wildlife populations in my hometown. I returned after ten years away and was shocked by the decrease in deer populations and how difficult it was to catch fish in my old spots.”
Before joining GeoEngineers, Amy broadened her environmental experience in the public sector and as a Chemical Sergeant in the United States Army Reserve. Amy joined GeoEngineers in 2023 as a temp worker, but it wasn’t long before she had worked her way into more responsibilities, and a full-time position.
“The people I worked with and the culture I saw being promoted made me want to join GeoEngineers permanently,” Amy explains.
Looking ahead, Amy hopes to continue to cross-train and develop new skills, return to college for her master’s degree, and eventually become a project manager at GeoEngineers.
In her free time, Amy enjoys working out at the gym, hiking with her dog, snowboarding, dirt biking, and fishing. “Anything outside and I’m there!” She says.
