Pam McLeod

Current Position: Education & Outreach Manager at Re-Inventing the Nation's Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt)
September 8, 2007Her job: Whole Travel
Where did you go to school and what degree(s) do you have? B.S in environmental engineering, Manhattan College, Riverdale, New York; M.S. and Ph.D. in environmental engineering, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California.
What kinds of activities have typically been part of your work? My background as an environmental engineer has exposed me to a host of environmental issues that feed directly into my work at Whole Travel. But while the job builds upon my technical skills and knowledge, it is not an ‘engineering’ position per se.
What do you like best about being an engineer? For me, the most rewarding aspect of being an engineer is knowing that I’m helping solve problems.  Whether the problem at hand involves contaminated sediment or unsustainable tourism, I like being on the front line developing new strategies to improve the situation.
Describe something about your life outside of work: your hobbies, or perhaps a favorite book. I love cooking and hiking and recently joined an improvisational acting group.
