Elected Region 5 Governor

Vision statement

I have dedicated multiple years to actively serving ASCE, contributing at multiple levels, and my experience with the organization has been nothing short of fulfilling. My time spent in leadership roles at Branch, Section, and Region levels has been centered around creating a positive and lasting impact while providing immense value to members. I am particularly passionate about engaging with college students and future leaders, and it has been a driving force in my motivation to continue serving the organization. ASCE's Government Relations platform has been an invaluable resource in my personal and professional growth, particularly in navigating legislative activities as a Civil Engineer. I am confident that serving a full term as Region 5 Governor will enable me to continue promoting ASCE and serving my fellow engineers, while also bringing about positive change.
