About Zoe A. Belcher
Zoe specializes in Brownfield Redevelopment, because it is an avenue to give back to the community. She believes that through these projects, everyone wins, as they can generate additional revenue for the municipality, create jobs, make the community visually appealing, improve tourism, and reduce crime.
Zoe, originally from New York, moved to Connecticut in 2000. She currently lived in Moodus, CT with her husband, Matt, and two children, Anastasia and Silas. Zoe attended Radford University from 1993 to 2001 where she received her Bachelor of Science in Geology with a Specialty in Engineering and Masters of Science in Environmental and Engineering Geosciences.
Zoe worked for a large environmental firm, in CT, from 2000 to 2015. During her tenure she became the first Registered Brownfield’s Professional in CT, a Licensed Environmental Professional and a Licensed Geologist in the State of Washington. She has experience in a wide variety of project work (see the Experience tab for a detailed list).
She is currently volunteering her time, as the secretary, on the SGU National War Memorial Committee, which is building a memorial to Laotian/Hmong soldiers who rescued downed US pilots in Vietnam. She hopes to be able to assist other veterans groups in the future.
