Reading, hearing, and learning about how federal policy and law requires a lot more nuisance and understanding, helped me decide the path I should take in my education in order to change people’s lives for the better. I also loved that I had a chance to actually put my degree into action and see how my education really works in actual field work and in practical application. Using what I learned about what I thought was simple concentration profiles and seeing how complex environmental calculations can get.
