Highlighting Kate Custer – ESG’s 25 Year Anniversary

MB&G is excited to share that 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of our Environmental Services Group (ESG). Throughout 2022, this important milestone will be commemorated by looking back at the group’s formation, highlighting a few key projects, and featuring our staff and their work.

This month we are highlighting biologist, Kate Custer. Kate joined MB&G in 2017 to help the Environmental Services Group tackle a large NEPA public comment analysis for the Alaska National Park Service. Since then, Kate has performed field and regulatory compliance support for a variety of public and private sector projects throughout pacific northwest. Her experience includes habitat restoration, project management, GIS, monitoring, and watershed management. She conducts field surveys and monitors for wetlands, invasive species, wildlife, fisheries, and water quality. Kate has served in several leadership positions having trained and managed others on topics related to outdoor education and sustainability.

She also is a huge reason for our success on the wildfire hazard debris management project with ODOT as she not only served as an environmental compliance specialist but was an incredible support as the project coordinator helping the entire team stay organized and able to do great work. We are incredibly lucky to have her on our team.
