Why Did You Join Sanborn Head?
I believe that a positive and professional culture is the hallmark of a premier firm.  Sanborn Head has that culture, and I'm excited to be part of their team.

What Do You Like Best About Working At Sanborn Head?
I have experienced a great sense of teamwork and professionalism at all levels of the organization.  This is a great working environment.

What Inspires You Most About Your Chosen Profession and/or Working at Sanborn Head
I enjoy working with clients to help them address their energy and plant operational issues.  Being part of a team that helps clients save money and keep natural gas flowing is very rewarding.  I was recently part of a design/build team that designed and installed natural gas infrastructure at a paper mill in Northern New Hampshire.  The day natural gas started flowing over 200 people were able to return to work!

Community Involvement
I have been involved over the years with school volunteering and the teen group at our church.

Fun Facts About Me
I recently began running half marathons.  In 2012, I ran in five events.  Not sure if I'll be able to keep up that pace going forward!
