Amanda RIng-Rissler is a task-oriented environmental project manager and emerging professional in sustainability consulting. She joins Worden Associates, Inc. as client program manager following completion of a B.A. in political science from Saint Louis University. While there, she gained significant leadership, management, public speaking and writing experience serving as Editor-in-Chief for One World, a social justice publication and student organization . Her interest in sustainability issues stems from experience in off-the-grid living on a Bahamian island and as a live aboard sailor. This lifestyle gave her a hands on consciousness of energy use, waste management, and environmental impacts. She uses her research background and problem solving skills to provide client support at WA, Inc.'s Camden, Maine office.
