Vision statement

I am devoted to a culture of continuous lifelong personal and professional growth that extends beyond the workplace.
As a ASCE Region Governor, I will be dedicated to connecting with existing and emerging groups to facilitate engagement and leadership development. I want to empower ASCE leaders and members at all levels of the ASCE Society by fostering collaboration among Sections, Branches, Younger Member Chapters, and Institutes.
I firmly believe that "All pizza is good”. This mindset extends to my leadership journey within ASCE, progressing from a student member to Oregon Section president. Eager to leverage my unique blend of innovative expertise, strategic thinking, and leadership skills, I aspire to contribute to the Region.
My vision encompasses the expansion of social and professional networks, not only for myself but for all members in ASCE. By creating opportunities for meaningful connections, we can enhance the ASCE experience.
My role as an ASCE Region Governor will be centered on a dynamic and supportive ecosystem. Through strategic initiatives and a commitment to excellence, I aim to elevate the region, making it a beacon of inspiration and support for all ASCE members in their professional endeavors.
