Anyone want to tell me whether they think my text in bold is a bad idea? I'm on the fence.

After gaining invaluable nonprofit experience, I joined the [Gov't Agency] as a pollution control specialist to learn another perspective on environmental protection. Most of my time is spent researching and interpreting the vast number of federal and state air quality regulations and EPA testing methodology. I have since realized that regulations are seldom black and white and are actually varying intensities of gray. Even so, regulated parties require definitive answers and I am charged with creating them. Though this poses a challenge, I enjoy deciphering regulations and even distilling a number of regulations into one cohesive understanding. Through this process, I have developed excellent analytical skills ripe for law school.
