Senior Consultant at The LitCon Group, LLC
MEng. in Civil & Environmental Engineering
I spent 4 years working toward a degree in my hometown of Evansville, IN. Upon graduation, I moved to the DC-area to work for local general contractor. After a few years of work, I felt the need to go back to school in order to pursue my passion in Water Resources.
I applied to several different programs across the country but I maintained that if I was accepted into the Maryland program, I would take it regardless of other options. The university offered a chance to remain in the area and study in a highly rated engineering program. To me, this was a no-brainer.
