CHUCK SMITH, PWS

What inspired you to choose your career path?
I have always enjoyed the lakes, rivers, and wetlands growing up in Florida.  Because of those experiences, I always wanted a career working on wetlands and river systems.  I decided to go to a school where I could play college basketball and focused my studies on lake and river systems.   While in college, my faculty advisor provided me one-on-one training in field biology and gave an opportunity to conduct a water quality study on a local lake.  That experience lead to my first career working in the environmental industry. 

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the team environment as a project moves forward, working together to solve project issues, and the sense of accomplishment when the project is complete or when a project is won.   I also really enjoy the field work, seeing and going to places that not a lot people get to see.  

What are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about my family.  With my two young sons and my wife, I really enjoy spending time with them in the outdoors fishing, hunting, camping, canoeing, and swimming.  Also, my sons and I really enjoy watching Gator football games and going to the UCF basketball games.

What is your greatest challenge?
Needing more time is my greatest challenge.  Finding that work, life, and service to my community balance has always been my greatest challenge.  I love spending my time with my family, but I would like to also be more involved with community organizations. 

Name an important “lessons learned” moment you have experienced.
In the environmental industry rules and regulations are always changing whether it comes from the federal, state, or local levels.  After being out of the consulting industry for a couple years, there were all these new rules and regulations that I had to learn.  The most lessons learn are to ask a lot of questions, be willing to change, accept new challenges, and learn something new along the way.
