Wendy Nystrom
Basher Productions, LLC
Founder

Environmental Social Justice (ESJ) was created by Wendy Nystrom, a self-described “Julia Child of Environmental,” where through effective communication and education, she closes the chasm between climate change experts and the general public.
The movement of eco blaming and criticism that has risen in the last few years threatens to do more harm for the environmental movement. That is where Environmental Social Justice comes in. Ideas and technology are discussed in an open, supportive format where there is no shaming or blaming, but discussions about how every little lifestyle change can have a positive impact on the world around us.
Our goal is simple, to help the everyday person make informed decisions about what they can do to help the environment within their own lives.
Environmental Social Justice, where small changes can have lasting effects.

Melissa Moore
Moore Money Bookkeeping and Business Management
CEO
Melissa Moore grew up in New York City. She moved with her family to Evanston, Illinois for High School then back to NYC.  She attended the Overseas campus in Great Britain at the University of Evansville, Indiana and Boston College.  While in New York, she was hired at Good Morning America in Research (before computers!) moving to another ABC show America Alive! before working on a United Artists movie Jaws of Satan.  She was asked to oversee the Post Production of the movie so she went kicking & screaming to L.A ("But I'm a New Yorker!") and only returned to New York to get her stuff. Once in LA, she stayed in Entertainment working on such shows as Faerie Tale Theatre on Showtime, The Dolly Parton Show on ABC and Jane Fonda's workout videos among others. Since she had the skill of spending and accurately tracking other people's money, she decided to start her own bookkeeping company Moore Money,

Brian TerBush
Urban Engineers, Inc.
Vice President, Construction Management, Western Region

“Work hard, play hard. There is plenty of time to sleep when you are gone.”

These are Brian TerBush’s words to live by, and it makes sense. This mindset is what makes it possible to be a senior project manager at Urban while also completing his divemaster certification for scuba diving. You can do both, and Brian does it all. He graduated from Manhattan College with a bachelor’s in electrical engineering, went on to earn an MBA in management from Adelphi University, and finally passed the Professional Engineer’s exam in New York. Now, as an Urban team member, you can catch Brian at the gym at 4:00 am before taking the train into the office and spending the day working on construction management and special inspection projects. It’s his favorite aspects of what he does – solving challenges, making progress, and eliminating roadblocks – that makes him excited to put in so much effort every day.

Brian doesn’t like to procrastinate or harp on the past, but always lives for today. He’s dependable, which is why you can trust him to coordinate the different moving parts of the projects he is working on. He can also be trusted to be a mentor to younger employees, who he wants to help excel. His experience being a mentor comes from raising two sons with his wife, Dawn, who are both now software engineers with degrees from MIT and Johns Hopkins, respectively. He could not be more proud of them.
