Why Did You Join Sanborn Head?
Sanborn Head was the primary consultant for a regional solid waste management company for which I was a permits, compliance, & engineering manager.  I was impressed with Sanborn Head’s capabilities and when the time was right, I sought a position with Sanborn Head…and the rest is history!

What Do You Like Best About Working At Sanborn Head?
I really enjoy working with clients to develop renewable energy projects; in particular, landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE).  Each of the LFGTE projects that we’ve been involved with over the past several years have been challenging from mechanical, civil, and environmental engineering aspects.  I’m proud of our firm’s ability to troubleshoot wellfield performance to improve gas collection rates.
