ITRC's State Engagement Program ensures that ITRC documents and training courses are available, promoted, and used. Each state assigns a staff person from its environmental agency to serve as an ITRC Point of Contact (POC).

The goal of the ITRC State Engagement Program (SEP) is to work with state environmental agencies to foster good decision-making regarding the use of innovative environmental technologies for more effective environmental protection. The core purpose of the SEP is to ensure that ITRC documents and training courses are available, promoted, and used by staff at state environmental agencies and all other applicable stakeholders. The SEP is comprised of a network of the state Points of Contact (POCs), along with the State Engagement Coordinator (SEC)—who is a voting member of the ITRC Board of Advisors—and contract-based Program Advisor support. The POCs play an integral role by serving as advocates for ITRC in their state’s environmental agency and by communicating their state’s environmental priorities back to ITRC. The POCs are also instrumental in marketing and promoting ITRC tools and resources to other government agencies, industry, academia, and community and tribal groups.

Best Part About Being a POC: The best part for me is staying up to date on the current science involved in different issues facing the States. That along with the technical experts I have meet through my involvement with ITRC, it is great to be able to pick up the phone and call someone who is one of the top experts on a subject.

Other Experience with ITRC: Remediation Management of Complex Sites team, LNAPL Update team and internet trainer for part 3 of the LNAPL training, PFAS team.

Hobbies/Activities Outside of Work/ITRC: My hobbies typically revolve around being outdoors such as climbing, fishing, backpacking, canoeing, or camping. What’s great is when you can combine hobbies for instance an overnight canoe/fishing/camping trip! I enjoy going to watch live music with friends or a having friends over for a backyard BBQ. Reading cheesy cop who done it novels or a good sci-fi book is typically how I unwind in the evenings.
