Have you ever had a “dry” season in life? When you felt like things just haven’t been right on the job or at home? Those moments when you do everything by the book, and yet life still seems to serve you a bowl full of uncertainty with a side of anxiety?
I never actually had a dream to become an engineer - I sort of fell in love with it after I started working. My internship at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment helped me understand how fulfilling of a career it could be. At 19 years old, I had no idea the breadth of what being an engineer could encompass, but I experienced the tangible ability to help people both improve their quality of life and natural surroundings through water and wastewater treatment working with the State Health Department.
