The Littoral Society is honored to welcome Gail Lalla as our newest Board of Trustees member.
Gail is an Associate and Business Development Manager for T&M Associates, a leading national consulting, environmental, engineering, technical services, and construction management company that has worked on greenway projects including the Passaic County Highlands Rail Trail (Wanaque, N.J., still in design phase); the Morris Canal Greenway (Jersey City, N.J., still in design phase) and the award-winning Schuylkill River West Trail (Upper Merion Township, Pa., completed in 2015).
At T&M, Gail is responsible for business development, grants research and procurement, project management, and the cultivation of existing client relationships. She provides a multi-faceted background in renewable energy, environmental planning, and community resilience.
Prior to T&M, Gail was the Vice President of Greener by Design LLC where she delivered proven results for public and private clients. In addition, Gail helped launch the Resilient Microgrids toolkit that is housed in the New Jersey Institute of Technology, to help various entities understand how to plan, finance, and build-out advanced Town Center microgrids in New Jersey. The creation of the toolkit has led to the completion of several advanced microgrid studies.
A microgrid is a self-sufficient energy system that serves a discrete geographic footprint, such as a college campus, hospital complex, business center or neighborhood.
Gail earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Rutgers University and worked as an intern with Congressman Frank Pallone before joining Greener by Design, all of which helped foster her passion for sustainability planning and environmental advocacy.
Gail has been asked to speak on many panels including the Roosevelt Strategic Council, Rutgers Alternative Energy Symposium, the NJ League of Municipalities, US Green Building Council’s Women in Green event, the NJ Chemistry Council, and various symposiums on clean energy.
She has also been published in NJBIZ, American City and County, U.S. Green Building Council, Microgrid Knowledge, and NJ Spotlight.
She currently serves as a member of the U.S. Green Building Council Market Leadership Advisory Board, the Crossroads of the American Revolution Steering Committee, the Middlesex County Planning Board, and the Woodbridge Township Arts Alliance.
