Jenny Tang specializes in due diligence for property acquisitions at ONE Environmental Group, a role that enables her to travel frequently.
“Our clients purchase nationally, and that requires me to hop on flights regularly,” she says. “This job has definitely brought me to different cities that I never thought I’d have a chance to see.” Denver and San Diego have become favorites.
When not traveling, Jenny immerses herself in the research component of the job, which calls for her to examine any potential environmental liability that could fall to the client. She worked remotely long before it became the new norm.
“I really enjoy the flexibility of the job,” she says. “The people in the company are a tight-knit group. We’re pretty particular when we hire because one person can cause a ripple effect across the whole group, and we really lean on each other to collaborate on all of our projects.”
Jenny followed the pre-veterinary tract at North Carolina State University prior to shifting directions her junior year. “I decided I wanted to help the environment they live in instead,” she says. She graduated with a bachelor’s in environmental technology and management.
The Rockville, Maryland, native is fluent in Laos and Thai. During her off hours, Jenny romps outdoors with her beagle/corgi mix, Bailey, and her pit bull terrier, Brodie. She doesn’t miss an opportunity to ski, fish or camp.
