What do you like best about your job? I started Solstice Environmental over 15 years ago (so hard to believe it has been that long) and although I do love the variety of projects and clients, I really appreciate the challenge of having to be adaptive to a constantly changing market. To be honest, the science and over achieving work ethic parts comes naturally to me, but I have had to rely on my instincts to keep the business successful and there is a great feeling when you trust your instincts.
Favorite project you have worked on - After 25 years...Too many to just pick one.
How do you like to spend your free time? Generally all things horses, water, and yoga.
Did you start a new hobby in the COVID-19 pandemic? I wish...worked too much!
