Alisa Lindsay joined Envirologic's staff as a Project Manager and Environmental Engineer in March 2020. In her role, she manages site investigations, site remediations, demolitions, and other complex projects. "Envirologic is thrilled to have Alisa on staff," said David Warwick, President of Envirologic. "She has 20+ years of experience in the environmental field, both in the private and public sector. Alisa brings unique experience and perspective to our clients, a strong work ethic, and a passion for doing good work to do good."
Alisa has over 23 years of management and engineering experience in state government, environmental consulting, nuclear energy, and the automotive industry. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering and is a licensed professional engineer. Before joining Envirologic, Alisa worked for six years for the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), the primary State-level environmental regulatory agency in Michigan.
Because Alisa has worked as both a regulator (through EGLE) and an environmental consultant, she knows how to navigate the complex environmental regulatory realm and applies that to her work at Envirologic. From her time working at EGLE, Alisa has gained an intimate understanding of EGLE's processes, how staff make decisions, and the various stages of submittal for Part 201 (Environmental Remediation) and Part 213 (Leaking Underground Storage Tank) sites. She also maintains a network of her former connections at EGLE, throughout various divisions and teams, that she can contact as a resource for regulatory clarification.
At Envirologic, Alisa works mostly in our Environmental Investigation and Remediation Services Group. As an Environmental Engineer, she adds more depth to the services we already offer. While there are some environmental reports that require a Professional Engineer License -- such as Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans -- what Alisa really brings to the Envirologic team is her vast and diverse experience, which allows her to consider various perspectives and angles when deciding how to best help clients and other stakeholders. Further, Alisa brings her experience with safety measures, engineering controls, and process improvement from her time in the nuclear sector to enhance Envirologic's safety practices for construction sites and implementation of projects. She also offers thorough technical review on projects (e.g., design reviews, design of pilot studies, feasibility analysis/studies, cost estimating, etc.).
Alisa currently works from home with her officemate, Happy, a miniature dachshund who just turned 10. In her time outside of work, Alisa is a freelance modern/contemporary dancer; she is currently a member of two dance companies, Chamberlain Dance out of Kalamazoo and Atelier Dance Company out of Grand Rapids. Alisa is also on the Board of Directors for Wellspring/Cori Terry and Dancers. Additionally, Alisa occasionally plays the violin, which she has played off and on since she was 10 years old.
When Michigan's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order was first enacted in the spring of 2020, Alisa and her family decided to learn something new: tennis. Her husband, Sean, has been teaching her and their three children over the past few months. Her family also enjoys hiking in various public parks in the Kalamazoo area, such as Asylum Lake Nature Preserve, Lillian Anderson Arboretum, and Eliason Nature Reserve.
