“I love this town because of the constant things to do – the balloon races, the all the events, the rib cook-off, the motorcycle week, the Aces games. I enjoy all of it! I love to hike, snowboard, any kind of sport, baseball/softball – I’m on the Panasonic softball team in fact, which is awesome. I just like getting outside, any outdoor activities. And the fact that California is right there, we’re not far from the coast for other activities too.”

“One of the great things about Reno is that, since you have the benefits of the city and all the outdoors so close, you can enjoy weekend activities every day.  And, a great thing about having such a fun and interesting job is that when the workday ends at 3:30, I’m usually feeling energized and ready to hit the trails, head to the river, lake, downtown, or pick up on projects.  It’s easy to actively enjoy and make the most of life here. I’m a volunteer ‘hiking buddy’ at the local humane society and after work will often pick up a dog and take it out for the rest of the day.  We’ll hop on a trail into downtown for socializing on the Riverwalk, or into the hills to see the wild horses or the Hunter Creek waterfall. I have beautiful mountain views in every direction, have an easy commute, and can take off right from my yard on my bike, mule, running shoes, or 4×4 onto miles of BLM trails.”

“I always knew that I wanted to be in Reno. There’s always Food Truck Friday’s, different Festivals to go to, all sorts of things going on around town. And I love that I can bike to MidTown, stop for lunch and go to a yoga studio, take my dog everywhere, and do lots of outdoor things as well.  I am a frequenter of Tahoe – hiking, mountain biking, swimming, anything.”

“I first came to Reno to study engineering at UNR almost two decades ago.  After graduation, I started working at Reno Engineering where the president kept saying ‘everyone is a vice president.’  He meant that everyone was responsible for representing the company’s services, and the company still believes the philosophy.”
