I am from Cedar Rapids, IA. I received my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Industrial Technology: Occupational Health and Safety from Iowa State University. I am currently working for a Master’s of Science Degree in Industrial Hygiene at the University of Iowa. My research interest is in substance impairment in the workplace. Beyond my degree, I would like to attain my CIH (Certified Industrial Hygienist) and CSP (Certified Safety Professional) to serve as a traveling consultant for various industries. Personally, it is a goal of mine to travel to each continent, either recreationally or occupationally.
