Sara Craven 26


Environmental Technologist


I am passionate about the environment. I wanted to do something that will have a real impact on protecting the environment and construction is it.  Everything we do when we build things has an impact on the environment so every day I can see how we are actually improving things.  Do you know that if we want to clear a field today for a new subdivision or a factory or something and there are birds nesting there, we wait until they’ve given birth before we start work?  Some people say things like this are a bit of overreaction but these are the kinds of things we have to do if we’re serious about protecting the environment.  When we have to work around a stream or a river now, we have to divert the water course or do whatever it is we have to do to protect the fish and other water life. I knew I could make a real impact in the construction industry so taking environmental technology after high school seemed like the best way to make that happen.  Aside from the tremendous satisfaction of the job, I get paid very well for doing what I love.  The job gets me outdoors a lot of the time and that’s where I think a real environmentalist can be most effective; actually making real changes in the field.
