Environmental Compliance & Operations Manager
Katie is the multiple hat wearer of Hazardous Waste Experts. She joined the company as an accounting assistant in June 2015, but her title quickly encompassed things from every department: marketing, administration, finance, IT, etc. One time, all of her many roles were listed out on a whiteboard, and it ended up being 25 different “hats” she was wearing. Katie enjoys helping others and is glad that every day has a different problem to solve. Her current title is Environmental Compliance & Operations Manager, but her roles in accounting did lead her to get a bachelor’s degree in Accounting, on top of the bachelor’s degree she had in Mathematics. Problem solving, communication, planning, and spreadsheets are right up her alley. If you have a question about Hazardous Waste Experts, don’t hesitate to ask her! Katie always claims if she doesn’t have the answer, she can at least point you in the right direction.
Growing up a military “brat” and in many places, she ended up in Littlestown, PA for middle and high school (a small town with only one stoplight!). Katie now lives in Colorado with her husband and two dogs, and enjoys many activities like hiking, board games, movies, baking, crocheting, watching football (Go Birds!), and most of all just hanging out with her friends and family. With six years of accounting in her background, five years of managing, and a lifetime of communication, Katie looks forward to helping HWE continue to grow and succeed in any way she can.
