As Governor, I would like to open up those same opportunities for the next class of engineers and to lead by example on how to make a difference in your community."      Section Assignments: Maine, New Hampshire (Upper Valley Branch) and Vermont Sections

"ASCE is the leading professional civil engineering society. I envision my role as Region 1 Governor to include working with Sections/Branches/Student Chapters within Region 1 to create enthusiasm for the Society and to promote the programs and products that ASCE has to offer. I have always enjoyed interacting with individuals from across ASCE at various conferences/meetings and have especially enjoyed learning what works and what does not work. These lessons learned have been invaluable and I hope to be able to not only share what I have learned, but to continue to learn from others."    Section Assignments: Buffalo and Rochester Sections
