Game Changer: Joella Viscusi on starting Ambient Environmental
Joella Viscusi, president of Ambient Environmental, took the adage “don’t get mad, get even” one step further. She beat them — at their own game.
After years of enduring sexist behavior in the environmental consulting business, Viscusi started her own company five years ago and is now considered one of the leaders in the field.
On April 8, 2011, a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding asbestos/fibers analysis was developed through the collaboration of the New York State Department of Health’s (NYSDOH) Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP) and Bureau of Occupational Health (BOH), and the NYS Department of Labor (DOL). This FAQ was distributed to all ELAP-accredited asbestos laboratories, as well as posted on the DOL website due to a high level of interest from asbestos-related mitigation companies /consultants, training providers or other interested parties involved in the assessment, sampling and/or analysis of asbestos.
