Chris’s career focuses on the specialized field of forensics. “Forensic facilities are at the front line of public health and should be seen as a community asset,” he says, “critical to maintaining a safe and informed community by assessing trends in the population.  They are built for the pursuit of knowledge, and in doing so bring closure.” His team is careful to consider the health of forensic facility staff too, creating work environments that support both forensic processing and the betterment of staff. “Being proud of where you work is connected to the value perceived in the work,” Chris reports. When it comes to Chris’s own health and wellness, he turns to hiking. “I love the mix of a long, strenuous challenge and the experience of nature’s beauty,” he explains, “where the exhaustion is eclipsed by the euphoria found at the destination.”
