nene_4bSenior Mascot IV

Ms. Nene is our newest resident biological resource, fashionista, and food critic/lifestyle coordinator for Burleson Consulting. She is a true native of the beautiful island of Hawaii and former director of the Kilauea Point National Wildtimes Refuge where she oversaw all bird matters. She had considered herself retired, however, upon a recent encounter with Nadia Burleson one afternoon on a beach stroll she became very impressed with Nadia’s company story and mission goals. She soon found herself flying first class back to the mainland to join the Burleson team and offer advice on Hawaiian charm, work, and flights of fancy.

As a vanguard of adventure and all things shiny and new, Nene believes she has fulfilled her calling to add décor to Burleson’s office headquarters. She loves Burleson staff, work ethic, Monday morning treats, and group lunches as never before witnessed in all her years as a State bird and event coordinator at the refuge.

In addition, she loves to take strolls along the Willow Creek preserve nearby the office and gladly lends her praiseworthy skills on avian psychology, plumage, management, and on rare occasion, canopy GIS mapping. Her main strongpoint, however, is to advise on spiritual wellbeing and life balance, found so commonly on the islands but often lost in the hectic hustle and bustle of life found everywhere else in the “developed” world.

Nene is very pleased to have found a new home at Burleson and she can be found perched quietly over the filing cabinets – or in Nadia’s office behind closed doors during meditation and yoga hours. She is single and is currently dating a local Canadian goose who spends his time between Folsom and warmer climates, as nature dictates.

Says Ms. Nene: “My life continues to be blessed with purpose and pride as a Burleson team member – so much so I never want to leave!”

Client Satisfaction

"Burleson Consulting was excellent to work with and very professional. They assembled a top-notch team of experts to study and propose solutions to the water supply challenges at Sutter National Wildlife Refuge. The communication was excellent throughout the project. This included project staff, contracting personnel, and interested stakeholders. As a result, the project was completed on time and on budget. I would not hesitate to use or recommend Burleson Consulting in the future."Kevin Clancy, Project Manager – United States Bureau of Reclamation

"Burleson provided exceptional services under this contract. Because of their successful work, they were awarded a $7M follow-on IDIQ contract in 2014, that also encompasses biological monitoring at former Fort Ord. They have consistently improved their plant material collection and propagation techniques and pass the savings onto the federal government. Burleson is a valuable team member on Fort Ord and I feel that they are true stewards of the environment." William K. Collins, BRAC Environmental Coordinator, US Army Corps of Engineers

"Burleson has been able to work with several government agencies (to include tribal groups and natural resource trustees) and several responsible parties to assist in progressing this site to a stage where technical and agency concerns can be identified and resolved. Strengths – overall and in depth understanding of mine site and CERCLA dynamics. Deficiencies – none. I would not hesitate to use Burleson." Daniel McMindes, USACE Liaison to EPA, US Army Corps of Engineers

"Burleson helped to manage the Sacramento Area Voltage Support Environmental Impact Statement. They came through and were always available during an ‘energy crisis’ in California. I will continue to work with them."Loreen McMahon, Project Manager - California Public Utilities Commission

"We appreciated Burleson’s great work, re: completing the draft EIR on the scheduled date (it was a tremendous task, but they completed it). All of them put a lot of work into it (it was a true team effort). They should all be proud of this accomplishment given the changes and obstacles encountered along the way, and I cannot thank them enough."Glenn M. Shuder, AIA, CFM, Chief Architect - Project Director, SMUD

"We chose Burleson Consulting because of their experience with the specific project matter in technical and regulatory issues and for their record of excellent communication skills in complex, multiparty projects. They were responsive to the matter and were sensitive to all relationships between the parties involved."Kevin Mayer, PE, Project Manager - USEPA
