Chanceé is a community-conscious engineer. This Selma, Alabama native uses her passion for eradicating inequities as fuel to provide technical competence and adept communication on environmental and transportation projects. As Co-owner and Principal of Nspiregreen, she is responsible for the management of environmental projects such as stormwater, energy, environmental policy, solid waste, air quality, and sustainability planning.
She has been recognized as one of Ebony Magazine’s 30 Leaders of the Future and one of the Top 100 Most Important Blacks in Technology by US Black Engineer. Chanceé is a former National Chairperson of the National Society of Black Engineers.
I became a planner/ engineer because… I have always been interested in helping communities become better. I understood that from the policy perspective but wanted to provide the technical expertise to communities. Growing up, I didn’t know what an engineer was but my love of politics, math, and science opened this world of innovative problem solving to me.
What would be her dream project? My dream project is to work on a transformational sustainable project in a developing country that builds capacity at the local level and meets the need of a community.
If I weren't a planner/ engineer… I would either practice environmental law or work as a part of a global non-governmental organization dedicated to progressive change.
