Cool stuff I get to do:

Since starting with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District in 2008, I have had the privilege of working on some of the nation’s most critical infrastructure. In my career with USACE I have had the opportunity to work on deep foundation dam remediations, design stream bank protection, design/build automated dam safety monitoring systems, and participate in risk assessments across the country.

The most fun I have had in my career is designing and installing automated monitoring systems at some of the biggest Dam Safety Remediation Projects in the world. This work has enabled me to bridge my love of all things tech and gadgets with my Geological Engineering background. Being able to design systems for projects such as Wolf Creek Dam in Kentucky, East Branch Dam in Pennsylvania, and most recently the Mosul Dam Project in Northern Iraq, has allowed me to work and learn alongside some of the industry’s best.

Value of a degree from Ole Miss:

The value of my degrees from Ole Miss is not just in the academic preparation to enter the workforce able to hit the ground running, but also the ability to foster meaningful professional relationships.
