Brad Yocum joined the Envirologic team as a Project Biologist in the spring of 2008. With four years of previous environmental experience in southeast Michigan, he was a natural fit for the position. Brad holds a master’s degree in Conservation Biology from Central Michigan University and a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resource Ecology & Management from the University of Michigan.
As a Project Biologist, Brad conducts due diligence work, asbestos surveys, ecological assessments, wetland delineations, and a large variety of other ecological services. Brad’s favorite part of his job is the diversity of work he gets to perform because it keeps every day fresh and interesting. One day he’ll be writing a report in the office, and then the next he’s out wandering a wooded plot in search of a specific specimen.
Brad met his wife of over 20 years, Julie, while he was an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan. As alumni, both are avid supporters of University of Michigan athletics, especially football, basketball, and hockey. Brad and Julie have two children, Landen and Brenna, and they spend much of their time outside of work trying to keep up with the chaos of after-school activities. With what time they have leftover, they enjoy taking family fishing trips to local lakes, deer hunting at Brad’s mother-in-law’s house, and most importantly indoctrinating the kids into the University of Michigan fandom.
