Connie House Joins BH’s Environmental Sciences Team

Connie House is a biologist with more than 28 years of experience in BH’s Marlton, NJ office.

Her background includes water compliance, permit writing, environment investigations and inspections. She wrote the stormwater pollution prevention plan for NJDOT’s Washington Township Maintenance Yard and also helped develop the Department’s three Highway Agency R-12 and one Public Complex R-11 Stormwater General Permits. Connie coordinated with the NJDOT’s Office of Safety to monitor the drinking water quality of 24 maintenance facilities, one rest area and two Motor Vehicle Inspection Agencies with domestic wells as its water supply.

Connie acquired permits and authorizations from New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office, Delaware and Raritan Canal Commission and the Army Corps of Engineers (Philadelphia & NY Districts). The permits were needed for maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of small bridges, roadways and maintenance facilities.

Connie started out as a nursing student at Coppin State University in Baltimore, but found she didn’t have the passion needed for this field. She changed and decided to major in Biology and has no regrets. Born in the Philippines and raised in Baltimore and they later moved to Pasadena about 15 minutes from Annapolis.

Since 1990, Connie has served on the Willingboro Environmental Commission, with the Planning Board for 10 years and volunteers in the community, church, and local labor union.

Connie and her husband raised two children, Yusuf and Imani, and she’s a proud lola (Filipino word for grandmother) of three boys ages 8, 2, and 1. Her son-in-law just took a position at the University of East London which now means Connie will be traveling to visit them. The Legends of Diega is a book written by her son about his grandmother’s life.

Her Subaru Forester has 354,000 miles logged in and thankfully is still going. However, she’s been thinking of replacing the car this year and giving the Subaru to her niece.
