Staff Spotlight – Rebecca Herbert

Title: Environmental Scientist

Brilliant Office: Bensalem, PA

Years with Brilliant: 1.5 Years

Main Job Responsibilities:  I provide assistance for managing site remediation within the NJ Commercial Underground Storage Tank Division and am responsible for the completion of Preliminary, Site, and Remedial Investigations in accordance with NJDEP Guidances & Regulations. My experience incorporates the development and implementation of site-specific and universal sampling methodologies for contaminants in air, soil and water; plume delineation, soil boring advancement, vapor investigations, well installation supervision, and report preparation.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Ardsley, PA which is located in Montgomery County.

What is your favorite season?

I love autumn because of the warm weather and cool breezes. I love pulling out light jackets, jeans, and wearing my “chucks”. Plus the changing of nature from summer to autumn is so vibrant and beautiful.

If you were in a beauty pageant, what would your talent be?

After thinking about this one long and hard, my talent would be crocheting a foot-long scarf with my fingers. Girl Scouts teaches you the oddest things.

Who do you admire the most?

Honestly, I don’t have anyone who I admire. When I was growing up, I was told I could be anyone that I wanted to be and I could achieve anything in life. But what I have learned the most is to become a woman who is respectful of people’s beliefs, who listens to others, who leads, who isn’t afraid of change, and who chases after their passions. My parents did not teach me to admire them or anyone else, but to be the person who is admired.  And that does not mean the admiration has to be publicly recognized.

Would you rather be rich or famous?

I would rather be rich. The reason is simple. I don’t want to be in People Magazine where my life is plastered across the media. Enjoy the wealth without the drama.
