Phoenix is new company, formed in 2012. However, I’ve been around a long time and so have all of my professional associates. I have a bachelor’s degree in Geology from the Ohio State University, I worked in the oil patch as a well site geologist for two years, and I’ve been in environmental ever since. I’ve been a professional geologist for eighteen years, an asbestos inspector for fifteen years, and an Ohio Voluntary Action Program Certified Professional (CP #315) for eight years. I previously worked as a geologist/project manager for several local firms and I successfully ran an environmental department for a national firm.

But you reach a point in your career when you ask yourself–is working for others enough? For me, it wasn’t.

I enjoy running the company, helping clients solve problems and knowing I’m improving the world my kids live in.

Although we are currently a single owner firm, I’m not the only one at the helm. I have established an excellent network of professional associates (PAs). They assist me with doing the assessments, developing proposals, evaluating data, preparing and reviewing reports, determining remedial options and any other critical decisions. I guess I’m smart enough to know, I don’t know everything. My PA’s consist of mostly senior professional’s consultants, geologists and scientists that are knowledgeable of their state environmental guidelines. A flexible workforce, it allows me to take on portfolio projects without staffing concerns. This business model is also more cost effective for the clients as they don’t have to shoulder significant travel costs.

Since our inception, we have had a reputation of successfully solving our clients’ environmental problems. We do this by understanding our clients’ goals, the regulatory framework they are under and by taking a collaborative approach to each project. Our goal is to reduce your risk by providing knowledgeable, cost-effective and timely environmental solutions.

Thank you visiting and for considering Phoenix. Please feel free to give me a call, I would be happy to talk with you.
