What does your average day look like? Or what are some of your essential duties?
I actively monitor river flows, equipment and all things related to Yuba Water's Yuba River Development Project. My day can be very quiet or complete chaos, but it never seems to land in the middle.
What is your background/formal education that led to where you are in your career today?
I started my career in the power industry at a young age and have now worked in this industry for more than 22 years. My first job in the industry was a loader operator at the Calpine Greenleaf 1 power plant in Yuba City.
