Growing up in rural North Carolina, Kaitlynn Bryan-Scaggs loved being surrounded by animals — dogs, cats, gerbils, hermit crabs and a neighbor’s horse she treated as her own. Being outdoors with them, along with an affinity for math and science, inspired her to earn two undergraduate degrees and one graduate degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Environmental Science, and a Master of Science in Geological and Earth Sciences.
“I like knowing why things are the way they are — why the trees are a certain color, for example,” Kaitlynn says.
Kaitlynn worked in quality assurance and gained technical expertise at a diagnostic lab prior to joining ONE Environmental in March 2021. Her scope of work in ONE’s Charlotte office has included Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments, commercial reporting, stormwater sampling, groundwater monitoring, soil investigations and sub slab vapor mitigation.
“I like that ONE is a smaller company where I’m able to have the accessibility to everyone at the upper levels of the company,” she said. “I feel like I can reach my goals here.”
Kaitlynn spends a lot of her free time with a sidekick who has been with her she was a teenager, a Pitbull Boxer mix named Tucker. She enjoys hiking, running and yoga as well as the urban scene in the south end of Charlotte.
