Representative Air Management Jobs


For the past two and a half decades Liesa Elliott has provided consulting services to EPA and clients operating major facilities in the military, energy, chemical, cement, aluminum, natural gas, construction and hazardous waste industries throughout the USA — including Alabama, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

Recent regulations have added clients with smaller operations as federal and state rules cover more air contaminants. She expects this trend to continue with no regulatory relief for her large industrial clients.


Sample Projects
