Prior to founding Altman Environmental Consulting (AEC) in 2014, Heather Altman was a senior environmental specialist for over 13 years with Environmental Management Associates. Over the course of her career, Heather has provided environmental consulting services for a variety of complex multi-disciplinary projects proposed on public and private lands throughout the western United States. Heather's primary responsibilities have been the management and/or preparation of environmental assessment documents, also supervising baseline environmental data collection and survey programs associated with these projects. Heather also has extensive experience processing entitlement applications at local, State and Federal levels, and has also designed public outreach programs intended to engage and inform the broader community. Though Heather's client base has typically been private industry, she has also worked with non-profit organizations, determining strategies to help them creatively achieve their group's mission on a constrained budget. AEC has also subcontracted to larger environmental consulting firms, offering either environmental analysis and/or public outreach services.
Since moving to Long Beach in 2001, Heather has been actively involved in her local community. Heather founded the Egrets Not Regrets Scholarship Fund at the California State University Long Beach, and was on the advisory council for the school's Environmental Science and Policy Department. Heather has served on the board of directors for several local environmental and neighborhood organizations. Heather is currently the President of Friends of Colorado Lagoon, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration of an important urban wetland within Long Beach. As a small business owner, Heather is also involved in the policy arena, speaking at events or panels to advocate for affordable and accessible health care.
Heather received a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from the University of California, Riverside, and a Master of Science in Environmental Management from the University of San Francisco.
