Based in Hawaii, Michele is an environmental impact assessment specialist and project manager.
When our clients’ projects trigger the national environmental policy act process or the state environmental assessment process in Hawaii, Michele’s job is to prepare the environmental impact assessment documents. This includes conducting impact analysis on resources as a result of a proposed project, coordinating baseline surveys including biological and cultural inventories, and assisting with stakeholder coordination. Always willing to reach out, Michele brings strong writing and analysis skills and the ability to problem solve and see solutions that satisfy both agency and proponent needs.
Outside of the work, Michele loves going to the beach with her two daughters, watching (and sometimes swimming with) turtles, snorkeling, and playing in the sand. She also enjoys gardening—her family grows sweet potatoes, bananas, and papaya in their yard and have a small herb garden. To top it all off, Michele runs loves staying active and runs the Big Island half marathon every year.
