My mentor, and father, told me that you will get out of your profession what you put into it. Since serving as one of the first AAPG Student Chapter presidents to today, I have lived by those words.

Service to AAPG has been rewarding, both at a personal level and at a professional level. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve my profession and the Association should I be so fortunate to be elected AAPG's vice president-Regions.
