Eileen’s years of experience have led her to note: During my career, I have witnessed the environmental discussion grow from polarization and conflict to recognition that by working together we can achieve far better outcomes for our growing society and the natural and human environment. This is an exciting time to be an environmental professional because it’s not just about compliance anymore. It’s about sustainability and doing what is right to meet the needs of a growing society in its security, housing, transportation systems, and infrastructure, while protecting, preserving and enhancing the natural and human environment in which we all live and on which we all rely for clean water, air and land resources.
