While growing up on his parent’s farm in Mid‐​Michigan, Cody spent much of his time tending to the land, hunting white‐​tailed deer, and cultivating a passion for his home state. At a young age, he not only learned the value of Michigan’s natural resources — our vast Great Lakes, rugged trails, and scenic routes — but also the value of preserving them. Armed with this deep appreciation, Cody’s education later at Michigan State University would introduce him to the role of policy and how it can preserve, and even shape, the environment around us.

Now a consultant on PSC’s energy and environment team, Cody conducts research and analysis, writes reports, and facilitates stakeholder meetings. He also performs data analysis, assists with economic impact and contribution studies, and supports other data needs at the firm. Cody is also a grant manager for the Great Lakes Fishery Trust — which PSC staffs and manages — and works with government entities, research interests, and nonprofit organizations to develop and administer projects that sustain our Great Lakes.

Prior to joining PSC, Cody was a student assistant at Michigan Rehabilitation Services, where he worked with the program innovation and policy teams to review federal legislation and facilitate implementation of new rules and regulations.
