In March 2018, Chris Jensen began work out of the TriCounty Health Department offices. With a new office location in Vernal, Jensen will continue work for the Department of Environmental Quality, working as one of the first remote employees.
Jensen is originally from the Uintah Basin and enjoys being here. Working with the Department of Environmental Quality as an Environmental Scientist, Division of Air Quality Minor Source Compliance Section, Oil and Gas Group, Jensen is working closely with local environmental studies.
“This has been a good career change,” Jensen said about starting work with DEQ and locating in Vernal.
Jensen and his wife, Bonnie Jensen, owner of Bonnie Jensen Gallery, live in Vernal. They have five grandchildren and enjoy car shows on their free time.
TriCounty Health Department is thrilled to be working with Jensen and look forward to his contribution to making the Basin a healthy community.
