Soccer and science fueled Elli Woodward growing up, and had the sight of needles and blood not made her queasy, she might have pursued a healthcare career. Chemistry fascinated Elli, so much so that she made it her minor along with geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science with a focus on Quantitative Energy Systems in 2019.
Elli is the newest addition to ONE Environmental Group’s Charlotte office, where her focus is due diligence and industrial work.
“ONE is a tight-knit group of dynamic individuals that I feel honored to be a part of,” she says. “At ONE, I feel valued for my professional abilities and personality alike, which is unique and truly appreciated.”
While the Durham native has lived in North Carolina most of her life, Elli is smitten by Thailand after spending her junior year abroad, completing a life-cycle assessment on the eventual waste management of solar panels.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life,” Elli says, drawn to the generosity of the natives, the beauty of the mountains in the northern part of the country, and the islands in the southern half. “I fell in love with Thai culture and Thai food, and look forward to going back one day.” When not working, Elli is likely planning her next trip or concert — she’s an avid fan of the indie folk band Mt. Joy and has traveled as far as Iowa to see them. Another fun fact about Elli is that her family agreed to all get tattoos if the North Carolina men’s basketball team won the NCAA championship during her time there. After the Tar Heels won the 2017 title, Elli got the word “TAR” tattooed on her heel.
