Melissa LeCroy Kirkpatrick, ONE Environmental

Melissa LeCroy Kirkpatrick

Environmental Consultant II

Melissa LeCroy Kirkpatrick joined ONE Environmental Group in October 2023. Based in ONE’s Georgia office, she will focus on due diligence and new development.

Melissa holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Biology/Ecology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She joined ONE after five years at an environmental consulting company where she worked in environmental planning and due diligence. In that position, Melissa worked with two of her current colleagues at ONE.

“I like the energy of the people at ONE,” she says. “Everyone has been so nice and kind. I’ve gotten messages from other people across the country who work here welcoming me to the company. It already feels like a family.”

Just a few weeks ago, Melissa married Kace Kirkpatrick, who, like her, is a fervent supporter of the Atlanta Braves. While he favors third baseman Austin Riley, she prefers catcher Travis d’Arnaud, touting him as MLB’s most underrated player.  “I grew up watching the Braves with my dad,” Melissa says. “Now my husband and I have Braves season tickets.”

The newlyweds enjoy spending time outdoors, especially with their two rescues: Layla, an Australian Cattle Dog; and Toby, a Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix. Both pups even played a role in their wedding. The couple loves to visit nearby wineries and just moved into their first home on 10 acres in Cochran, Georgia.
