City of Charlotte
401/404 Permitting Supervisor

How long have you been a member of SESWA (years)?
I have been a member, as part of the City's membership, since 2015.

Have you served SESWA in the past? If so, how?
Yes. I am currently a Board member and would like to retain my position. I have also served on the Conference and Education Committee.

What abilities and attributes can you bring to the Board?
I have been on the SESWA Board for the last two years.

What background and experience do you have in the stormwater industry?
I have 20+ years in MS4 NPDES compliance, watershed planning and habitat and stream restoration in Michigan and North Carolina. I am currently overseeing the Charlotte Storm Water Services' 401/404 Permitting Group.

Why do you want to serve on the Board of Directors?
I'd like to serve on the Board of Directors for SESWA again because I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Board; I think it's a great organization for stormwater professionals to learn and network in the Southeast. I think supporting SESWA is also extremely important for staying up to date on national and regional policy. I hope to continue supporting SESWA and helping to make it a great association.
