I started environs in 2009 with the idea that i could have a construction company based on transparency, communication, and a commitment to my crew, my clients and my community to do better (and apparently use more alliteration). environs and i will always be a work in progress - learning and improving and having fun while doing so. When i am not doing environs related work, I’ll be playing soccer (i love teams!), talking to my sisters, ogling dogs (pretty much all animals), and laughing with anyone who will laugh with me.
I joined the environs team after six years working office-side for a stainless steel fabrication shop here in Portland. My experience includes project management, purchasing, and a variety of other administrative tasks. Working with environs is a wonderfully reciprocal engagement – I am looking forward to bringing my knowledge and experience to the team while soaking up all that I can from my coworkers, in an effort to continually improve each of our lives and our community as a whole. Working with my sister, Holly, is icing on the cake!
It is hard to nutshell any one on this team, Dan is no exception. He is environs’ lead carpenter and provides us with an endless well of both time tested and creative solutions for our projects. He is one of the smartest people I’ve met - I count myself very lucky to have him as a friend and team member. When he is not being an awesome carpenter, Dan is likely educating himself on something(everything), on the river in a canoe/raft/kayak, petting a cat. Suffice to say, Dan is an all around 90’s man.
