Parker Leglue joined ONE Environmental Group in September 2022 and is the company’s first hire based west of the Mississippi River. Parker works remotely in Austin, Texas, and travels to manage projects in other parts of the state as well as in Oregon and Colorado. He conducts environmental sampling and writes reports in addition to project oversight.
Parker holds a Bachelor of Science in Geology from the University of New Orleans and a Master of Science in Geology/Earth Science from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Before coming to ONE, he worked for four years as a Project Manager for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
“This job was a nice change of pace and the people at ONE are really enthused to be here,” he said. “Everybody I work with has been super helpful and have made working remote as easy as it can be.”
Parker grew up the middle of three brothers who were always playing football. His oldest brother, John, is an offensive lineman for the Tennessee Titans, and Parker, who grew up a New Orleans Saints diehard, travels to all of his games. As a former pastry chef in New Orleans, Parker enjoys Cajun and creole food and favors making braised short ribs. The former bass drummer is also a live music buff, having seen the Disco Biscuits dozens of times.
Parker prefers to be outdoors, whether it be fishing, tennis, golf or walking with his hound, Dude.
