Nick Hill, LPG, Senior Project Manager
Question: What’s your background and career path?
Answer: I am originally from Ohio and grew up in the Dayton area. I graduated from undergrad with a BA in Geology from Ohio Wesleyan University. I then moved to Indianapolis to work at an environmental consulting firm and worked there for six years. At that point, I was introduced to EnviroForensics and began working here as a Staff Professional. Over the last 8 years, I have climbed the company ladder to Senior Project Manager and obtained an Indiana Professional Geology License.
Q: How do you feel about being named Employee of the Month?
A: It was a pleasant surprise! To be singled out of a group of so many high caliber peers is quite an honor. But I really couldn’t do my job or be where I am today without the support of others; from field staff to Directors. A very humble thanks to all!
Q: What do you enjoy about working at EnviroForensics?
A: What I enjoy most at EnviroForensics is the people and the supportive atmosphere and environment. I truly rely on the strengths of others every day and it‘s great to work with such willing and able peers. Since I came from a large company where employees were hardly recognized or supported, it has been very refreshing to be with a company that truly find ways to put employees first.
Q: What is one of your most exciting projects at EnviroForensics?
A: Right now, I’m working on a project here in Indy that is focused on source remediation. The results have been coming back with great effect so far, and we plan to continue cleanup efforts on a downgradient plume remediation before the year ends. We are excited to start this next step in the project!
Q: What is your life like outside of EnviroForensics?
A: Outside of work, life revolves heavily around family with my wife, Emily, and our 2 girls Claire (8) and Audra (5) in Martinsville. Emily has started working again after being at home the last 8 years with our girls and we are excited that Emily is teaching at the same school as them.
I’m a big soccer fan, having played up until college, and I am a big supporter of Liverpool FC in England.
After the hustle and bustle on most days, I mostly enjoy quiet evenings at home binge watching Netflix or catching up on the latest soccer matches. I enjoy trying new foods, craft beers and wine. My brother-in-law recently introduced me to cigars, and I’ve found those to be quite good with a bourbon.
