The aspects of the agency that speak to me are how diverse the work is that we do; from forests to grass lands, from mountain tops to under water, the composition of the agency made up by various different responsibilities makes it so interesting."
"I am committed to this agency's purpose, the Washington Geological Survey is an amazing place full of innovative, creative, and open-minded people, and I get great satisfaction from serving Washington's residents. I love it here because this place loves me. I like how I am made to feel valued, appreciated, and I feel that my skills are constantly being broadened. I am generally my only limitation."
"The idea of managing the resources in perpetuity really speaks to me. I like that the work DNR does tries to strike a balance between business and conservation and that I don't have to compromise one for the other because I am expected to do both. We are expected to be good stewards of the resources and the decisions we make mean something...in perpetuity."
