It is exciting to share that as E2PM navigates through 2024, several Divisions of our small business are growing.   E2PM strives for continuous improvement to meet the needs and goals of its clients, by offering new capabilities and expand on its skill sets at varying levels whether it be recent college graduates, junior level staff,  field technicians, or senior level project managers.   E2PM’s new employees enhance the company with their personal levels of skill, knowledge, experience, or connections.      

Throughout this last year, E2PM’s Environmental Department has grown significantly under the leadership of its Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs) John Ferrante and Marianne Brody and Senior Environmental Scientist, Katarina Seymour.  Several staff member additions truly have made and continue to make a difference by offering unique experience or skillsets and hands-on capabilities that enhance the department and create increased opportunity for clients to receive great attention to detail, scheduling, and budgeting for their individual projects. 

Joining E2PM throughout this last year include Environmental Scientists, Allison Reid and Elizabeth Appaluccio, both college graduates of Stockton University experienced with groundwater monitoring well installations / sampling, soil test pitting, soil core sampling / logging, Phase I due diligence, Phase II remedial investigation activities and reporting, and lab data interpretation.  Senior-Level Environmental Project Managers, Scott Myers and Todd Kelly also join the Environmental division both offering a plethora of experience that could be curtailed to any site investigation or remedial project.  Mr. Myers has over 25 years of nation-wide experience in environmental, engineering, construction, and site remediation projects at various facilities.  Mr. Kelly brings his invaluable experience in remedial efforts including his recent role in supporting a Drycleaner remediation project in Brooklyn, NY that received a 2023 Big Apple Brownfield Award for Innovative Remediation. Collectively, the newer staff of the Environmental Department continue to enhance and create a unique small business environmental with capabilities to tackle any size project.  They are a synchronized team where they each have their designated roles and responsibilities from project startup to closeout while also staying within budget and respecting the many wishes of their clients.    

Great things are also happening in E2PM’s Cultural Resource Department, with new Secretary of the Interior (SOI) qualified staff joining the firm under the supervision of Mr. Scott Wieczorek. With these new additions, E2PM offers extensive experience managing the complexities of cultural resource investigations from initial identification to site evaluation to mitigation on projects for both public and private clients. The Cultural Resource Department’s driving principle is to efficiently balance both the impacts of a project on cultural resources (i.e. historic buildings, archeological sites, and cultural landscapes) as well as the impacts of the cultural resources on a project’s design and timeframe. With these new staff, E2PM can provide a broader range of services to the firm’s growing client base. 

E2PM has welcomed Archaeological Crew Chief / Crew Coordinator, Shane Dvorak whose research interests in mortuary archaeology and North American historical archaeology help broaden our collective understanding of human behavior. Bailey Skibar joins the team with a bachelor’s in fine arts in Preservation Design and expertise in historic property development and preservation. Most recently, Jamie Kouba joins E2PM as our Archaeological Laboratory Manager responsible for coordinating, conducting, and QA/QC for archaeological laboratory analysis. Ms. Kouba will also serve as a Project Archaeologist responsible for overseeing and conducting archaeological investigations and overseeing various field and laboratory staff.  Recently Ms. Kouba was highlighted on The History Channel’s Season 11 of the “The Curse of Oak Island” where she was hired as Lead Archaeologist for 6 months in Nova Scotia during the filming of the show.   

E2PM is very proud of the continued growth experienced in recent years and looking forward to see the many projects that these two divisions have the opportunity to work on and grow with in the future!
