As a child, Elias Ruhl was interested in just about everything. Whether it was daydreaming about one day becoming a famous inventor or becoming a professional athlete in multiple sports, he never lacked enthusiasm for whatever he was doing. This broad-spectrum interest is evidenced by Eli’s college experience, where he majored in Biology and earned minors in Geography, Chemistry, and Religion and Philosophy while also playing intercollegiate soccer and being involved in numerous clubs and activities. In his professional career, this wide-angle perspective has also served Eli well by allowing him to take on many different tasks and roles throughout his career. He has worked as a field technician, a project manager, group leader, and department manager. His love of people, attention to detail, enjoyment of the outdoors, and desire to work hard has allowed him to excel at his profession, both technically and practically.

Eli enjoys getting to know his customers and providing them with solutions for their environmental needs. Whether performing a wetland delineation for a future roadway, environmental due diligence associated with a real estate transaction, or an asbestos survey prior to a building renovation, he is always looking for better ways to serve his clients and surpass their expectations. Eli’s duties regularly include consultation with clients on regulatory and technical issues, including the areas of natural resource assessments, environmental risk management, real estate development, and industrial hygiene services.
