The Principals

Eileen Christensen


Eileen Christensen founded BEC Environmental, Inc. in 2002 to focus on addressing Brownfield Projects. She was fascinated by the opportunity to not only assess and clean up contaminated properties, but also to work with communities to transform those blighted properties into community assets. Eileen wanted to develop personal relationships within each community to better understand the unique needs and wants of the residents and leaders within that community. By obtaining a better understanding of the underlying drivers behind each project, she was able to help identify appropriate funding opportunities, technical assistance programs, and economic development diversification tools.

Elizabeth Nelson


Elizabeth Nelson initially moved to Las Vegas to retire from a full career as a Florida Certified Public Accountant who specialized in small business development and financial planning. However, she shared Eileen’s passion for working to improve the anthropogenic environment one community at a time and decided to lend her accounting and financial expertise to Eileen’s scientific approach to project development. The combined approach – scientific/technical evaluation (Eileen) and business/economic application (Elizabeth) proved successful and demonstrated the broader view to the redevelopment process that provided complementary benefits.
