Wessler is proud to announce Amy Harvell, CHMM, RPC, as this month's Employee Spotlight! Amy currently serves in our Environmental Services Group as both a project manager and the assistant group head, with more than 20 years of experience.
Amy joined the Wessler team in 2011 and has played a key role in permitting, wellhead protection planning, erosion and sediment control, MS4s, and wastewater treatment plants for various projects. We had her answer the questions below so that we all can get to know her better!
What are your roles/responsibilities at Wessler?I am an Environmental Services Senior Project Manager and Environmental Services Assistant Department Head. I haven’t checked, but it might one of the longer formal titles in the company. I basically manage projects anywhere from MS4, Wellhead, and pretreatment to industrial evaluations, emergency planning, permits and air compliance. I have been lucky in my career that I have been able to experience a little bit of a lot of things in the environmental field.
What does the Wessler Way mean to you?
I see different parts of the Wessler Way each day. For example, recently we had a retirement party and it really does feel like you are losing a member of the Wessler Family. Mainly for me, it is treating clients in the same manner as Wessler treats me – they value my service, commitment, dependability, and appreciate the work/life balance. I want to make sure I pass on those traits to the clients - that they mean more to Wessler than a contract, but are truly valued as a member of the Wessler Family.
What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work?
I like to play cards, read and watch action movies.
Tell us one thing most people probably don’t know about you.I will preface this… I am not a hoarder, but I own probably over 1,000 books. I had to build a wall of shelves over Christmas break just to store some of them, which are primarily fiction and young adult books.
What are some things you haven’t done yet that you would still like to do?I want to travel to New Orleans (maybe this year!), Key West and the Caribbean. Give me a pool and an umbrella drink and I am pretty happy.
What is the best vacation you’ve been on?
I went to Seattle with my Mom and a cruise to Alaska with about 30 family and extended family members. The scenery was amazing! I recommend it to everyone I hear talking about taking a cruise.
