Why Did You Join Sanborn Head?
I started Sanborn Head with three of my co-workers because I wanted to have a greater impact, and greater responsibility, for my professional career.  Having such tremendous colleagues and friends to embark on this adventure was also a key factor.  We set out to, and have consistently to this day, provided our clients with the level of technical expertise equal to or exceeding most of our peers, including firms many times our size, and offer a level of service that meets or exceeds our clients expectations.

What Inspires You Most About Working At Sanborn Head?
I really enjoy and derive great satisfaction from making our clients projects become a reality, and solving our client’s problems.  Another aspect of my work that inspires me greatly is the mentoring and training of our staff.   I also find the challenge of working through a highly technical project very satisfying, particularly when doing so with the outstanding clients and co-workers that we have.

Fun Facts About Me
I greatly enjoy the out-of-doors, especially downhill skiing, hiking and water sports.  I stay very busy keeping up with my four teenage daughters.  Prior to becoming an environmental consultant in 1988, I completed geologic research in the minerals and oil industry during which time I had a variety of experiences including: climbing four active volcanoes; going as deep as 3,000 feet underground in mines in Canada, Latin America and the US; completing minerals exploration in Maine and the continental divide areas of Colorado and Wyoming; and working for Exxon Petroleum Research in Houston.
