Carol Slaughterbeck, PE, PMP

Executive Vice President

We live in a complex world with many competing interests. I delight in projects and work that constantly improve future outcomes for communities, people, economies, and ecosystems. I love learning new things and working on challenging problems – in my career at Herrera I’ve had many opportunities to do both in my roles as an engineer, a storm sampler, an operations manager, and CFO. Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with my family, hiking, movies, reading, and chilling at the lake.

Favorite Species
Mountain lady’s-slipper, Cypripedium montanum because it is rare but occasionally found near Coeur d’ Alene lake where I grew up and first appreciated the beauty and complexity of our world.
Proudest Moment on the Job
1990. Herrera had only ten employees. Convinced management to buy its first legal copy of a spreadsheet. It took A LOT of convincing. Seems pretty funny now.
