Michelle Wills-Hill | Environmental Specialist

For the last 17 years, I have been working as an Environmental Specialist in the Environmental Services Division at Colorado Springs Utilities. My responsibilities include environmental compliance audits of our facilities, operations and off-site waste disposal sites, management of hazardous materials and wastes, training on environmental regulations, performing environmental assessments of real property transactions, and providing technical guidance on projects to ensure compliance with environmental regulations in support of our environmental stewardship initiatives.

When diversity of thought is absent, the tunnel vision of like-mindedness becomes perilous to innovation and creativity. Our best is demonstrated when we embrace and harness the ideas, viewpoints and perspectives of people from various ages, experiences, and backgrounds as an essential component of the way we must do business to stay relevant not only today, but also as we prepare for the future. Diversity of thought is also a strategy for which Springs Utilities positions itself in the community as an inclusive employer by attracting, developing and retaining a skilled and diverse workforce that is representative of the community we serve.

My ongoing efforts to help Colorado Springs Utilities be more relevant in the larger community include participation on the Harrison School District Two’s Bond Construction Oversight Committee to provide input on construction capital projects; serving as a Peak Education mentor to high school seniors to assist them through successful navigation of the college funding process; and contributing as a Very Involved Parent on Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiatives at Harrison High School.
