I have been active in ASCE since college (1996). For the past 5 years, I have been active at the Section level, holding several officer positions. During my tenure the past 5 years, I have assisted with planning annual conferences, fundraising and bringing another Student chapter online. I would like to take these experiences and help future Section officers lead and continue building a strong State Section of ASCE in Arkansas. I feel that serving as a Region Governor will help with this task. I am also preparing to participate in ASCE's Federal Advocacy Pilot Project. I feel that being a Region Governor will help me serve in this capacity as well.
