What Do You Like Best About Sanborn Head?
I truly enjoy the daily opportunity to collaborate and strategize solutions to difficult issues with my colleagues at Sanborn Head. I especially like when we develop preemptive solutions before problems arise. Our leadership structure not only acknowledges our collaborative power to function as a team, but celebrates our individual achievements and contributions.

What Project Most Proud Of At Sanborn Head?
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to provide environmental assessment and remediation services in support of the design and construction of the first Vietnamese American Community Center (http://www.vietaid.org/) in the United States. This involved cost-sensitive integration with the design and real-time construction process including the design and installation of an integrated, passive sub-slab vapor venting system to address the potential for vapor intrusion. The Center has become a vibrant area providing economic development programs and services to the Vietnamese community.

Fun Facts About Me
I am an avid fly fisherman and flytyer, with a particularly keen love for trout fishing in our great Western States. I see fly fishing as the perfect balance between science, nature, and art with the fish being the ultimate judge.
