PRINCIPAL, GOLDER, TAMPA
Moultrie, the first African-American female environmental scientist/engineer in Florida, has more than 35 years of technical and program management experience in a range of permitting and regulatory matters. She is responsible for strategy and business development for the firm’s U.S. power sector business line, developing teams, business plans and business strategies to address clients’ regulatory challenges. She serves as project director for several large multi-disciplinary projects that require air, water, waste, remediation and/or multi-year biological studies.
She grew up in Pensacola and was one of the first black students at a formerly all-white elementary school. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in chemistry from Florida State University. Initially planning to be a pathologist, she changed her career path and went to work for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, where she was the first female, and the first black person, to work at the agency in a professional position, according to the Weekly Challenger. She went on to earn a master’s degree in engineering management from the University of South Florida in Tampa.
