Our Founder and CEO
As a marine biologist raised in a small town of farmers in landlocked Arkansas, Amy Whitt understands the importance of following your passions regardless of your situation. The old proverb “where there’s a will, there’s a way” definitely applies to Amy’s life. Her strong will and passion for conservation and outreach propelled her into a personally rewarding career helping others while protecting the environment.
Amy has over 11 years of professional experience in protected species research and environmental management. Prior to founding Azura, Amy served as the Marine Science Program Manager and Scientific Diving Program Manager for VersarGMI. She has conducted marine research and environmental compliance projects across the globe for a variety of clients including federal and state agencies, the oil and gas industry, and the offshore renewable energy industry. A conservationist, explorer, and grammar guru, Amy continues to apply her “where there’s a will, there’s a way” approach to help clients find solutions to their problems, and she encourages this ethic in the rest of the Azura team.
Azura strives to empower people and organizations to meet their goals while also conserving natural resources and minimizing impacts to the environment. We also aim to foster environmental stewardship and an excitement for science within our communities, thereby enriching the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds.
Azura’s clients are as variable as their services and range from large businesses in need of full NEPA assessments to young professionals looking to improve their resumes. Previous clients of the Azura team have included federal and state agencies, private organizations, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, the oil and gas industry, and the offshore renewable energy industry. In addition, we often team with large consulting firms and other small businesses to provide services to clients. The ideal client for our professional editing services includes any of the previously mentioned clients as well as individual professionals.
Azura fosters solid partnerships with other small businesses, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, federal agencies, and additional organizations. We believe in enhancing our own skill set by harnessing the expertise of a network of specialists to provide our clients with the best possible team to meet their needs.
