WHAT’S A PLACE YOU LOVE IN THE MIDWEST?

I spent some years living in the city and it was a treat to have access to the Lake Michigan lakefront every day. It’s the source of many wonderful memories for our family. Now that we’re out in the suburbs, the lake is one of our favorite places to visit.

WHAT DRIVES YOU TO DO THIS WORK?

It’s an honor to work with and learn from talented colleagues who bring their passion for protecting the environment every day. It takes everyone’s commitment to take care of the Midwest’s beautiful landscapes, clean air, and clean water. We can’t take them for granted.
