Rob is the Watershed Ambassador hosted by the New Jersey Water Supply Authority for the 2017-2018 term. He is responsible for Watershed Management Area 9, which includes the Lower Raritan River, South River, and Lawrence Brook. As a part of the program, Rob completes biological and visual stream assessments, gives educational presentations on water issues, and engages the community in environmental stewardship through volunteer events. The Watershed Ambassadors program is a partnership between the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and AmeriCorps, and Rob is excited to be a part of it.

Rob graduated from Villanova University in May 2017 with a degree in Chemical Engineering and a minor in Sustainability Studies. In his free time, he enjoys tennis, running, and reading. Upon completion of his term of service, Rob would like to pursue a career in environmental engineering and hopefully make the world a better place.
