BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED?
Richard Hastings’ poem, “The Station,” that my father cut out of the newspaper and hung on the fridge when my brothers and I were in high school. To this day I have it hung in my office. The core of it says to live life to the fullest.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT YOUR PROFESSIONAL SELF?
I wish there was more time to spend in the field and learn about what our groundwater industry needs so that we could point our engineers and team in the right direction to help develop better solutions.

MOST SATISFYING PART OF YOUR JOB?
Water issues throughout the world and our country are similar and different at the same time. I love learning about new technologies, implementing them into our product offerings, and working with our team to develop new product solutions that help solve water issues and give consumers that peace of mind they desire.

HOW HAS YOUR LEAD AND PFOA/PFOS REMOVAL SYSTEM BEEN RECEIVED BY THE GROUNDWATER INDUSTRY?
We’ve been fortunate to have the support of the groundwater industry and educate it on the technologies that currently exist to help those who are faced with or concerned about these contaminants. Our Pioneer filtration system has been warmly received, and we look forward to additional innovative product introductions in the offering later this year.

WHAT WATER TREATMENT QUESTIONS DO YOU HEAR MOST FROM CUSTOMERS?
With any type of new products, there are a lot of technical and application questions about how a new product will work in certain installations or water characteristics. The questions are bountiful, so our team is here to help provide technical support to the installers or sellers of the equipment.

BEING EFFECTIVE IN WATER TREATMENT MEANS . . .
The providing and design of innovative product solutions that help consumers use their groundwater for drinking, cooking, bathing, etc.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE OF WATER TREATMENT LOOK LIKE?
The use of technology in its simplest format, whether it be for POE or POU, so that the solutions are designed to be easy to install and maintain but continue to solve the most challenging water issues we are facing today and into the future.
