Intern Spotlight: Russell Wells, Jr.

8-26-2022

We're thrilled to have several interns joining us at Parametrix this summer! We strive to provide challenging, hands-on project experience to students entering our industry. Inspiring young professionals early in their career is critical for the future of our profession and for our purpose of restoring the health of the planet for future generations.

Meet Russell Wells, Jr., an intern with our Puyallup, WA water group. He is from Port Orchard, WA but moved to Texas in 2013 for his military service. He attends Texas A&M University with plans to graduate in August 2023 with a degree in electrical engineering.

Why did you choose an internship at Parametrix?

I chose Parametrix because of the nature of the work they do as consultants. I very much enjoy the idea of working on an entire site instead of a tiny component or part.

What would you like to accomplish during your internship?

I intend to finish this internship and then come back to work after graduation.

What is your ultimate career goal?

My ultimate career goal is simply to continue in this path and continue to move up. I enjoy the work and I have to continue to learn throughout my career and become better every day in order to stay in it.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my spare time I like to play games, go hiking, or just hang out and watch a movie with my wife and three kids. I have three boys, ages seven, six, and one, and a little girl on the way.
