Meet our EcoPeople: Amy Hawbaker
“Meet our EcoPeople” will periodically introduce one of the staff members who make up the EcoEngineers family. We’d like you to get to know us! Read more about Compliance Auditor Amy Hawbaker below.
Title: Compliance Auditor
How long have you been working at EcoEngineers? Since February 2019
What service area do you work? I work in Audit Services, specifically with RNG clients.
Where are you from? I currently live in Dallas Center, Iowa, but I grew up in Newton, Iowa.
What degrees or certifications do you have? I am a California Air Resources Board-certified LCFS Lead Verifier
Why do you do what you do? I just kind of fell into this field 20 years ago and never left. I like to stick with what I know. I like to feel like what I do makes a difference and it is nice to work for a company that has a big impact on reducing climate change.
What question do your friends or family typically ask about your job? “What do you do, again???” I usually just say that we are a renewable fuels consulting/auditing company and leave it at that before they gloss over.
What is the biggest problem you solve? How would you describe it and your approach to fixing it?We are constantly learning new things at Eco. We are currently learning more about the CARB-LCFS program and Oregon is next! Flipping back and forth between RFS and LCFS can be a challenge sometimes.
What do you do you for fun outside of work and why do you enjoy it? I enjoy spending time with family, gardening — anything outside. My husband and I also like to ballroom dance.
