Company description…

Earth Angel is an environmental consulting company that services the entertainment industry. We provide the skilled labor, specialty equipment, carbon emissions analysis and vendor partnerships necessary for film sets to shoot more sustainably and efficiently.

I started my business because…

Mainstream entertainment is still antiquated in its environmental practices. Rather than entertainment being made at the expense of the environment, I believe it should positively impact local communities. My entire career and business is dedicated to understanding the logistics, analytics, and politics of developing and implementing environmental regulations into one of the most influential industries in our society.

What makes my company unique…

Earth Angel bridges two industries that are generally thought of as being unrelated – environmental consulting and entertainment. And, we are the first and only successful environmental consultancy to film and television production.

Mantra I live by…

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. Integrate a standardized method of environmental accountability throughout the entertainment industry
  2. Transform the entertainment industry into a leader of sustainability
  3. Employ, empower and inspire women to drive social change everywhere

Women entrepreneurs are…

Not to be underestimated. They are the key to solving some of the world’s biggest problems.
