Meet Marissa –
she works in our Environmental Engineering department. Marissa assists R2M clients with Environmental
Compliance, specifically with Storm Water & Waste Management. She is also
part of R2M’s training team and focuses on Environmental Education. She grew up
in Plainview, Texas and attended West Texas A&M University where she double-majored
in Environmental Science and Biology. Marissa recently passed the Certified
Hazardous Materials Manager exam. As a CHMM, she will be able to make a
significant impact on her community by protecting the environment and the
public’s health and safety. In her position, she will keep up with the
advancements in technology and changes in compliance requirements that occur
frequently in hazardous materials management. To prepare for her exam she spent
hours studying flash cards and doing a lot of research while snacking on plain
“I’m glad it’s over,” Marissa said with a proud look on her
face. At least for now she can revel in her success, until she has to renew her
certification five years from now or choose to continue her education and gain
higher credentials in handling hazardous materials.
Until that time comes, she has some work to look forward to
in the next couple of weeks. She’s currently updating R2M’s Storm Water
Training by putting together better presentations for clients. She’s also
creating a more thorough checklist for the Waste Program. Then Marissa will be
out of the office for four weeks on what she calls the “Permian Tour”. She’ll
be traveling to clients in Odessa, Troy, and even as far as South Dakota to
perform quarterly audits.
When Marissa is not working, or studying for her next
certification, she enjoys reading historical fiction, hiking in the canyons, or
going on adventures with her new husband.
