Melissa Gildersleeve, Washington Department of Ecology

ecofluence | Persuasion for the Planet [cached]

This is a follow up from last week's interview with Joyce LaValle of Interface. Â After grad school, her daughter, Melissa Gildersleeve, spent 20 years as an environmental regulator. Â I recently interviewed her... Â It took several tries... but we finally managed to connect. Â Listen to her incredible story here.

Melissa has been an environmental regulator with the Washington (state) Department of Ecology's Water Quality Program for over 20 years
Melissa talks about how graduate school waste studies helped her understand how carpet (her mother's industry) played a major role in the landfill She tells us exactly where she was when she shared the book with her mom Notice HOW she approached the conversation... sharing her stories from work, the power of business, a new way to be successful, and tying environmentalism to progressive social issues How might her approach be different than most, and have led to her success? Melissa shares why following up the book recommendation by helping create supportive relationships was so important As changes began to happen at her mom's company, she still asked questions using what she knew to help them critically think about the issues
Melissa says, "I am a big tree-hugging environmentalist, and to me Ray Anderson was the top environmental person in my life in terms of really getting it and making something happen."
Melissa is a self-proclaimed cynic... can you relate? She says that although there was no "master plan"... giving that book to her mom (in 20 years as an environmental regulator) was one of the biggest key things that she did to have a measurable change in the world She describes the work of her mother's organization, Women's Network for a Sustainable Future She shares how happy she is that her mom moved to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to her, and continued her work in sustainability
Melissa confirms that she's shy, not a people person, likes to spend her energy at work, and take trips far away from the hustle and bustle Surprise! Â I find out Melissa did the whole interview while on a canoe trip with two friend on the Puget Sound
Before telling her own story, Joyce makes it clear how important another story was... that of her daughter, Melissa
PS. Â Surprise! Â Melissa and I were able to connect... so you can guess what the next blog will be.
