Climate Services Manager

Nicole is the Climate Services Manager for CarbonBetter, with twelve years of environmental and sustainability experience.

As an Environmental Engineer, Nicole has an extensive background in environmental and sustainability consulting, and voluntary and mandatory air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting. Over the last ten years, she has provided strategic consulting services within a range of industry sectors, including petrochemical, oil and gas, railroad, and manufacturing.

Her GHG reporting experience includes supporting multiple confidential oil and gas majors and assets in the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry segments in complying with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) mandatory GHG reporting requirements, while simultaneously supporting corporate and voluntary GHG reporting efforts and helping clients to evaluate GHG reduction opportunities. She also has experience selecting and implementing GHG metrics software applications, including Enablon and Cority.

Her experience with energy management includes conducting energy assessments in accordance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001 energy management standard, and the EPA’s Boiler Maximum Available Control Technology (Boiler MACT) requirements. She has completed energy baselines and full energy assessments, performing calculations to quantify energy savings and return on investment analyses of proposed energy savings opportunities.

Nicole also has experience with climate protocol development. She supported the US National Park Service in developing desert spring sampling protocols to annually monitor springs in the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts and determine the impacts of climate change on spring systems. This included protocols to integrate weather monitoring systems into existing sampling plans to identify correlations between weather patterns and animal populations in desert areas near the United States and Mexico border in Arizona.

Nicole holds a MS in Environmental Engineering and a BS in Civil Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. She is originally from Georgia and enjoys spending her free time outdoors: playing tennis, swimming in Barton Springs, and exploring hiking and mountain biking trails throughout Texas.
