Elisa L. Buckley, Principal/Managing Director Environmental Services, Walsh Environmental Solutions

Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in:

For me it was a childhood love of the woods and streams by my house that lead me to pursue environmental studies in college and then a career that allowed me to be outdoors. As a child I was always interested in being in nature and exploring.

It was a natural fit for me to focus on environmental science in college and then I obtained my first job, in 1999, while an undergraduate with a small environmental services company where I had my first exposure to commercial real estate investigation.

What is your current position?

Principal/Managing Director Environmental Services for Walsh Environmental Solutions.

What was your greatest professional accomplishment in 2020?

I made an unexpected career change during the pandemic. I had been with a large firm for almost all of my professional life but due to the economic impact of the pandemic that changed. At first it was very difficult to process the reality of what was happening but for me it really was a blessing in disguise. For most of us change is uncomfortable but sometimes it is necessary. From the very first call I had with Ed Walsh, my new boss, I knew immediately that my new role is what I really wanted.
