Congratulations to CentriPipe Applicator Michelle Beason, with National Plant Services, for her recent recognition by CWEA in their Women Impacting Water profiles.
“Michelle Beason, regional manager for National Plant Services in Hayward, is responsible for her company’s sewer and storm water services throughout northern California, Oregon, and Washington.
After a student internship with EPA in her home state of Michigan piqued her interest in environmental work, she earned a Civil Engineering degree from Purdue University, and worked as an engineering consultant, and an asset manager for East Bay MUD. She also opened her own construction company, building homes and installing underground utilities.
Her experience comes through in the dozens of presentations she gives each year, and they in turn demonstrate her advice for both men and women in the water management field: “If you have the confidence to get out there and the drive to make it happen, you can be successful in this industry.”
