What is your favorite experience from your internship?
I’ve enjoyed working with the department’s other intern, Marlee Strong, while we’ve been preparing data in Excel from Monitoring Wells at the Old Newton Landfill and making a timeline of Newton Landfill from the 1960’s to now.

How did your mentor/supervisor inspire or help you to grow during your internship?  
I’ve been mentored and taken in by the whole department has taken me in and I’ve learned so much from everyone it would be difficult to say I’ve learned more from any one person.

What do you like to do in Catawba County?
I have a friend that also works in Catawba County as a plumber and every Friday we go to Hickory and go out to dinner and usually cruise up Hwy 70.
