Welcome to the forum. If you’d like, please share your story of why you got into wastewater and a little about your career

I personally (like many) never set out as a kid saying “I want to be a wastewater operator”. I got a job as a correctional officer (prison guard) and after about 6 months decided it wasn’t what I wanted to do for a career. With my background, I got into security. The first assignment the company had for me was to be the security guard for the Milwaukee Water Works plant. After meeting with the operators, I became interested in getting into the field. I ended up working as a wastewater operator for 7 years and have recently advanced to a full time consulting and technical service role. I was very fortunate to meet great people who mentored me, that I met through the previous forum waterandwastewater.com (now closed- shut down due to spam). I enjoy process control, troubleshooting plants, training operators, and presenting One very exciting thing about this field, is there is always more to learn. I look forward to sharing the knowledge that I have, as well as learning from others and networking through the forum.
best regards,
