Larson Wolfe originally planned to be an engineer but discovered the Integrated Science and Technology major at James Madison University. The combination of sciences and critical thinking appealed to him and laid the foundation for the Environmental Consultant position he accepted at ONE Environmental Group in April 2022.
Larson grew up in Chesterfield County in suburban Richmond, where, as a three-sport athlete, he starred in football, wrestling and lacrosse. He visited multiple schools and attracted Ivy League interest before deciding on JMU, following in the footsteps of his brother, Logan.
“I always wanted to go to JMU, and I really liked the major because it’s not just focused on one area. You got exposed to the science and the tech world,” Larson said. “It creates these broad problem solvers.”
Larson works remotely based in ONE’s Richmond location, focusing on the environmental side of the energy industry. He spends roughly half of his time in the field developing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans and ensuring hazardous materials meet Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and EPA safety standards.
“Everyone at ONE has been super helpful,” Larson said. “There’s not any closed doors. Everyone helps everyone else, true to the ONE team theme. I also like the diversity of industries and sectors I’ve been exposed to.”
Outside of work, Larson loses himself in electric guitar, which he has played for years, and is a gym rat who enjoys fishing and golf.
