My name is Rachel Grefke and I am an Environmental major at SUNY Potsdam. I received your contact info. from the PM Environmental website which I had been looking at for my internship coming up in the summer. For my environmental field prep. class I am required to preform an interview on someone in the environmental field and I was hoping you would be willing to allow me to interview you?
