Senior Project Manager

Angela Wallis

Angela brings a decade of resource conservation program design, implementation and evaluation experience. She has particular expertise implementing Community Based Social Marketing principles to effect behavior change regarding recycling in settings with multicultural customers. In her role as Resource Conservation Manager for the King County Housing Authority she designed, implemented and evaluated food waste and recycling outreach programs for multicultural, senior and low income family residents. She also supervised the design of recycling outreach materials. Angela increased diversion by over 40% (from 25% recycling to 36%) in four years, reducing solid waste costs $100,000 annually.

Angela is skilled at persuading busy managers to implement lasting environmental behavior change. She has worked with dozens of small, medium and large property managers and management firms with diverse backgrounds to implement energy conservation and recycling projects and programs. She seeks to establish ownership over recycling in the customers she works with, while also recognizing that for many a new recycling program is “extra,” therefore effective implementation requires ample assistance, follow-up and follow-through

Angela has a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Studies from Dickinson College, and a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Washington.

David Stitzhal

President

David Stitzhal

David started his environmental career standing knee-deep in garbage when he designed and implemented what is arguably one of the nation’s first landfill sorts in the late 1980’s. He was hooked, and a career was launched. The solid waste field quickly called on many aspects of his peripatetic academic experience, from biology to anthropology to city planning.

In 1993, after working for Cornell University’s Waste Management Institute, local governments, environmental non-profits and other consulting firms, David founded Full Circle Environmental, Inc. He has served as President and Lead Consultant since that time, as well as serving on a number of local and national boards of directors. David currently serves on the Boards of UPSTREAM and the National Stewardship Action Council.

David has created a vast network of relationships with an array of talented colleagues across the U.S. He excels at bringing people and organizations together to achieve program and policy goals. Specifically, David has helped lay the groundwork for conservation programs setting the trend for the nation, including pharmaceutical take-back, electronics product stewardship and commercial sector recycling assistance. Recently, David earned the Understanding the Living Building Certificate through the International Living Future Institute.

David is known for a creative and results-oriented approach that has led to a number of award-winning projects. He has a BA from Swarthmore College in both psychology and sociology/anthropology. He has a Masters degree in City & Regional Planning from Cornell University.

Eden is a skilled project manager known for her exceptional ability to develop rapport with people from diverse experiences and perspectives.  Her passion for environmental sustainability began in the early 90’s at a remote international school in Finland.  Her subsequent work in Peace Corps Jamaica — with early PET bottle reclamation efforts in the watershed of Negril — launched a career committed to businesses, industry, local governments and the community.

At Full Circle Eden enjoys developing and implementing programs that work effectively within operational, policy and cultural constraints.  She frequently distills complex concepts into simple and effective messages that generate positive change.  And she is a master at developing and achieving measurable outcomes and evaluation metrics.

Eden has provided program design and evaluation, data tracking and analysis, technical assistance and promotion for numerous local governments in California, Oregon and Washington, as well as private entities such as the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the Microsoft Events Team.  These diverse projects – ranging from recycling market development efforts to sustainable events initiatives to award-winning facility recycling programs – demonstrate a wealth of expertise, particularly in waste reduction and recycling.

Eden recently created the Refresh Recycling campaigns for the cities of Redmond and Bellevue, and played a leadership role in the Washington State Recycling Association’s Multi-Family Property Manager Recycling Survey.

Eden has a BA in Global Environmental and Social Systems Studies, a Masters in Public Administration, and has studied the principles of community-based social marketing.
