“I worked with the Martin County Soil and Water Conservation District. I loved how outgoing the staff was and how passionate they were about their specializations. They were exceptionally willing to introduce me to and teach me new things, as well as entrust me with responsibilities even though my skill level was not as high as theirs. They gave me freedom to ask questions, they advocated for my career development, they went to trainings with me, and helped me set up a shadowing day with a professional engineer in the area.”
