Abstract (Summary)

Emerald Environmental Inc (Emerald) is a privately held environmental consulting firm specializing in industrial hygiene, environmental, and waste management. Sustainability for Educators and the Environment (SEE) is a non-profit organization that provides environmental education to northeast Ohio schools and practical application of sustainability principles. This report details an internship with Emerald and SEE, between May 2006 and November 2007. During this internship I had many duties ranging from day-to-day office tasks and major program development. Some major tasks included grant writing, hiring and supervising interns, and developing Emerald's environmental management department. My goal for this internship was to experience different sectors of the environmental career field to determine what best suited my experience and attitude.
