Ramsey celebrates 30 years at Hanson

Deborah (Deb) Ramsey, P.E., project manager, recently celebrated 30 years of service at Hanson Professional Services Inc.

Ramsey, who joined the company’s Springfield, Illinois, headquarters in 1993 and now works from Indiana, has managed a variety of projects, with an emphasis on the treatment of water, wastewater and hazardous and industrial waste. She has been involved with the decommissioning of the former Kerr-McGee site in West Chicago since she joined Hanson. She has managed demolition projects, including for a frozen-food facility in Mattoon, Illinois, and for the Holiday Inn Holidome and the FS feed mill, both in Springfield.

She has been extensively involved with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). She served as a project officer for Hurricane Ivan FEMA disaster assistance in Alabama’s Mobile County. She was an instructor for disaster training in Washington, D.C., and for public-assistance operations classes in Alabama, California, Kansas and Texas. She spent four months in 2011 as a project specialist in South Dakota, which had experienced statewide flooding, and was a public-assistance trainer for Hurricane Irma recovery in Florida. She has been a costing specialist since November 2019 for the Consolidated Resource Center East in Winchester, Virginia.

She also managed audits conducted at precast concrete plants in 48 states, three Canadian provinces and Puerto Rico for the National Precast Concrete Association.

Ramsey earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical and petroleum refining engineering in 1978 from the Colorado School of Mines. She also earned a Master of Business Administration in 1984 and a master’s degree in environmental studies in 1986 from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She is a licensed professional engineer in Illinois and Colorado and a member of the Air and Waste Management Association and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
