Hydraulic Engineer

Before joining Ayres in 2016, I worked in the fast-paced field of land development. I then decided to follow my core values and interests, which led me to pursue a master's degree in civil engineering at Colorado State University with an emphasis on hydraulics and river mechanics. I try to bring an efficient and innovative perspective to each project, reaching beneficial outcomes through critical thinking and technical competence. I'm a born communicator and enjoy learning and sharing ideas.

My background has given me a solid grounding in efficiency, geometric design, and construction. Recently I've developed specializations in two-dimensional hydraulic modeling, stream rehabilitation, and sediment transport. I'm familiar with a number of 1D, 2D, and 3D hydraulic models.

I am an instructor for National Highway Institute (NHI) courses, including Stream Stability and Scour at Highway Bridges and Countermeasure Design for Bridge Scour and Stream Instability. I received an Instructor of Excellence award from the NHI for my teaching in fiscal 2019.
