The next installment of our “meet the team” series — Colin and Kathleen Wassenaar!
Really, the picture above has so many great elements. The Wassenaars are Canadian (notice the flag placement), and love cycling. In fact, Colin has inspired me to attempt as much transportation in Cambodia as I can by bike. Including cargo.
As it turns out, Kathleen is the staff member of the couple. Her specialty is geotechnical engineering, so you all know that I’ll be trying to learn as much as I can from her. Hopefully, she’ll even let me help with a few test pits. But on top of that, from her expression in this picture alone, I think it’s clear that she and Laura should become good friends quickly:
Final fun tidbit: I recently discovered that Kathleen and a friend of mine (Evan Forbes) went on an EMI trip together a few years ago. Evan and I went to Colorado School of Mines together — in fact, his involvement with EMI was part of how I come to know about them.
Of course, if you want to follow along with the Wassenaars, check out their blog: https://thewingsofdawn.wordpress.com
