I think the work environment at Balance is a very positive part of the company. I find that there is a strong sense of comradery and productive collaboration when we work together to solve problems, especially out in the field.

The best part of my job is field work and getting to work in and around streams. I enjoy the challenges and many learning opportunities that come up, and I find it very satisfying to efficiently accomplish tasks in the field.

I’ve always wanted to do field work near the Columbia and Colorado rivers.
