THE BEST ADVICE I EVER GOT?
The best advice I’ve received is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” I know this is cheating since it is a famous Bible verse, but it is still the best advice for me.

ON MY DESK RIGHT NOW?
A picture of my family, my Bible, and notes for a workshop I’m planning for the American Ground Water Trust. The AGWT is a nonprofit groundwater education organization I volunteer for.

WHEN I WANT TO UNWIND . . .
I play with my granddaughter or do just about anything outdoors such as hunting, fishing, golf, etc.

MOST IMPORTANT CHALLENGE FACING GROUNDWATER PROFESSIONALS?
Educating the consumer regarding the value and importance of groundwater.

EFFECTIVE WELL REHABILITATION MEANS . . .
Using the proper energy and tools to remove the deposited material.

THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN GOOD REHABILITATION?
Understanding and defining the problem.

YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCES FOR WELL REHABILITATION?
The people who are working in the field—learning, innovating, and rehabbing every day. They include Neil Mansuy, Jim Bailey, and Marvin Glotfelty, RG. I’ve learned more from these men than from any other resource available and view their friendship as a gift.
