About Michelle Eversen

Michelle Eversen is the Assistant Regional Director of the Gulf Restoration Program which oversees the Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment Restoration (NRDAR), including coordination for the RESTORE Act, as well as all other NRDARs in South Atlantic-Gulf and Mississippi Basin Interior Regions. After working in the private sector as an environmental scientist, she began her career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2002 as a field biologist with the Chesapeake Bay Ecological Services (ES) Field Office before moving to Headquarters into the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program where she worked on national policies and budget formulation. In 2012, Michelle joined the leadership team in the Atlanta Regional Office as the ES Program Supervisor responsible for supervising the ES Field Office Supervisors across the Southeast.

On any given Sunday Michelle can be found on a body of water, be it rafting a river, paddle boarding in a lagoon, or sitting by an ocean, all with her husband and latest rescue pup. Michelle attributes her love of nature and critters to her childhood time spent with her grandparents either on the farm in Virginia, trying to catch bullfrogs out of the pond, or in the brook in New Jersey, looking for salamanders. Michelle holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology from Virginia Tech University and a Master’s of Science degree in Environmental Toxicology from Clemson University.
