Q: Name, Title, Location
Kristin Gable, National Due Diligence Manager, Berkley, Michigan
Q: Tell us a little about your role and what you do.
I manage the Due Diligence Department and oversee the coordination and completion of Phase I ESAs, along with risk reviews and other related projects. I work with the Regional Managers overseeing day to day operations, managing workflow, and ensuring we are producing quality reports and providing our clients with guidance and recommendations on how to address recognized environmental concerns, aka RECs.
Q: What energizes you about your career?
Our industry is relatively young and constantly evolving. I have already seen so many changes and advancements in how we produce Phase I ESAs, which have improved that process. It will be exciting to see how new rules, regulations, and technology impact Phase I ESAs in the future.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who wanted to follow in your footsteps?
There are so many smart, talented, and accomplished professionals at PM; use those professionals as resources to learn everything you can about environmental consulting.
Q: What’s the most important risk you took, and why?
Majoring in Environmental Science – I wanted to major in a degree program that interested me and planned to figure out the rest as I went. I really didn’t do my research and had no idea what my career prospects would be. Luckily, I found a job and career in environmental consulting that I truly enjoy!
Q: What does work-life balance mean for you?
Work-life balance is tough to achieve, even with the best personal and professional support systems. For me, it means being flexible, controlling what I can control, and reprioritizing work and personal commitments to achieve that balance, even if just for the day.
Q: What has been one of your biggest joys as a leader?
Being a part of our staff’s professional development throughout their career at PM (and beyond). We have awesome project managers in Due Diligence and throughout the company and I am proud to be a part of that.
