Marie is principal and owner of Sapphos Environmental, Inc. She is an environmental compliance specialist with more than 35 years of experience in managing public- and private-sector projects that require strategic planning, environmental compliance documentation, and resource management. She is recognized by the Los Angeles Bar Association as an expert on the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). She has extensive experience with environmental compliance documentation for capital improvement projects for transportation, energy, recreation, health care, and water. She has served as a strategic environmental advisor on complex joint environmental impact statements and environmental impact reports for projects such as multiple conventional and renewable energy projects, the Los Angeles International Airport Master Plan and subsequent improvements, China Shipping Yard, and the Los Angeles County Drainage Area. She served as the project manager for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Campus and Long Beach Memorial Master Plan. She has overseen the entitlement and environmental analysis and permitting for over 3,000 megawatts of renewable and conventional energy projects and transmission facilities in the western United States.

Marie is a 30-year member of NAEP and the California AEP. She currently serves as Past President of NAEP and Chapter Director representing Los Angeles on the California AEP Board of Directors. Her focus as President of NAEP was to support the environmental profession, practitioners across the nation, and the people who live, work, and recreate in the communities we serve. A key objective was to educate the public regarding the value of clean water, healthful air, and the natural and cultural resources that distinguish the Unites States as one of the most coveted locations in which to live and visit. A key aspect of this objective was to engage in a fact-based dialogue about the symbiotic relationship between the environment and long-term economic sustainability.

Marie believes NAEP should be the premier venue for environmental professionals practicing in the United States and abroad for dialogue about environmental law, policy, regulations, guidance, and protocols. NAEP should serve as a conduit for information between environmental professionals and policymaking and rule-making bodies in the United States, including the Council on Environmental Quality, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marines Fisheries, and the National Park Service. She is committed to facilitating a dialogue with environmental practitioners, policy and rule-making bodies, nongovernmental organizations that advocated on behalf of the natural and built environment, and environmental lawyers.
