After meeting Professor of Environmental Studies Woodward Bousquet, and learning what the program had to offer, Kimberly Bryant Pastewski ’99 immediately knew that Shenandoah was the school for her. With all of the dedicated professors, unique teaching methods, research and internship opportunities, Pastewski found it to be a no-brainer to attend Shenandoah.
As an environmental specialist at the Sarasota Florida County Environmental Protection Division, Pastewski has the opportunity to work closely with air and water quality. Pastewski insures that the quality of air and water in Sarasota County is safe for the residents by writing permits for facilities in the county, and inspecting those facilities thereafter to insure that they are up to code.
Pastewski’s advice to current students is: “Take advantage of all of the possibilities available at Shenandoah to determine what direction you’d like your environmental career to go in when you graduate. Also, take as many classes with Dr. Bousquet as you can!”
