Affiliation: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services

                    Previously: Solitude Lake Management, MACTEC Engineering

Current Residence:  Charlotte, NC

Education: Undergraduate: Samford University – Environmental Science

                    Graduate: Bemidji State University – Aquatic Biology

Interest in North Carolina lake management: I enjoy going to the conferences and learning about what other organizations, groups, companies are doing on lakes.  There always is a wide range of topics.  There is a wealth of information that can be garnered from others. 

Participation with North Carolina Lake Management Society: I have been an active member for the past 5 years, since I began my employment with Mecklenburg County.  Many of my current co-workers are also active members and have also held various positions within the organization.  

Hobbies, interests, recognition, passions, etc.: I grew up fishing and small game and deer hunting.  My father’s family has land in Alabama, and I have spent many days hunting, camping, hiking and target shooting on the property.  While in graduate school, a fellow classmate got me hooked on duck and upland bird hunting and I go back every year to ND and MN to try to bag a few birds.  Wherever we go, it is hard to keep me from the water, even just to look.  

A reason or two for others to join North Carolina Lake Management Society: As mentioned, there is so much information that one can gather from the presentations at the conferences.  They can help guide and direct what you may be trying to study on a lake or body of water.  It is also an incredible organization to be able to network through and gain contacts.  Everyone shares the same ideals, values and goals when it comes to studying and protecting our water resources.  ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Interest in North Carolina Lake management: For the last 10 years I have been working as an environmental monitor for the state   of North Carolina. My current duties within the Division of Water resources, calls for me to me travel across the state to collect samples of drinking and recreational surface waters.

Hobbies, interests, recognition, passions, etc.: An active boater and fly fisher, I enjoy camping to reach the out of the way fishing spots. I am fascinated by all aspects of aquatic ecology and the relationships between water and the rest of the world. I have a goal of catching a fish in each of North Carolina’s 100 counties, so you can find me on a water body nearby.
