Environmental Site Assessor
Lewis Center, Ohio 
With August Mack since 2014

Describe a typical day at August Mack.
Typical day? What's that? As an Environmental Site Assessor for our transaction services, my day consists of a host of responsibilities and tasks. My first responsibility is to ensure report and proposal deadlines are met and we are meeting (and hopefully exceeding) clients' expectations. At any given time, our group has up to 20 projects occurring simultaneously. It is my responsibility to ensure that each project is being executed by staff and that potential environmental concerns are being communicated to the client as early on in the project as possible. As an Environmental Professional (EP), I must determine the presence and/or absence of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) for each Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). Should RECs be identified, I streamline the environmental due diligence process for the client by preparing a Phase II ESA proposal in conjunction with the submittal of the Phase I ESA to ensure that transactions/acquisitions are not delayed. Implementation of the Phase II is often carried out by our O&M team while I review laboratory results and compare data to applicable standards, write the Phase II ESA report, and communicate field observations and findings to the client.

In addition to my technical responsibilities, I am currently the President of Commercial Real Estate Women – Columbus Chapter (CREW Columbus). This organization consists of 9,500 members around North America and Canada and exists to influence the success of the commercial real estate industry by advancing the achievements of women. CREW Columbus is over 70 members, men and women. I lead the group at monthly gatherings, board meetings, and community events.
