For this installment of Encamp’s Women of EHS video series, we spent some time with Jennifer Collins of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to get her thoughts about working in the EHS industry. And as far as EHS careers go, hers has been a distinguished one.
Since 2016, Jennifer has served as Pollution Prevention and Compliance Assistance Manager for IDEM. Before that, she was Supervisor of IDEM’s Air Compliance Branch; Branch Chief, Pollution Prevention and Recycling at IDEM; and Administrator of the Bureau of Environmental Services for the City of Indianapolis Department of Code Enforcement. She is a graduate of Indiana University, where she earned her B.S. in Public Affairs with a focus in Environmental Science.
You’ve spent more than 20 years in the EHS realm. Any pointers for other women? “One thing women should do is own their own skills,” Jennifer told us, “and make yourself invaluable to the people around you.”
Experience speaks volumes. Watch Jennifer’s Women of EHS video to hear what else her experience has to say.
