“No matter what part you play, in whatever you do, it can be very helpful. Anything is as strong as its weakest link. And I think the job I play is super important because I help facilitate things and make sure that communication is happening. . . It’s all important because at the end of the day we want EPA to put out the regulations to help make the country safer and healthier for everyone, so by everybody doing their part it helps that along just a little bit more.”
