New York City Mayor's
Office of Environmental Remediation as a geologist focusing on "E"-Designation on
Brownfield Sites in the 5 boroughs.
"My internship at the MOER was a comprehensive and through immersion in Brownfield Remediation efforts in NYC. As the E-Designation Intern I reviewed architectural plans, CEQR information, requests for documentation from our office from developers, I prepared Notices of No Objection, used the MOER?s new management system, and learned about zoning and remediation techniques. In addition to my work in E-designation, I also did research on the Gowanus Canal, read and compiled Superfund listing responses to the canal from civilians, participated in Pre-Application meetings with different developers, went to staff meetings, wrote articles for the website, created a powerpoint presentation for environmental consultants, and did extensive research on Financial Resources in NY for developers of Brownfield Sites. As a city intern I also took advantage of the opportunity to participate in a service project to clean up the beach at Coney Island, visit MOMA to hear a lecture on NYC Service, and I recently went to Staten Island for an informational tour of the Fresh Kills Landfill."

After four years of study at Southern Methodist University, Breanna Gribble earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree (B.F.A.) in Dance Performance, a Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.) in Geophysics, and a minor in Mathematics graduating Magna Cum Laude in Spring 2008.
A native of Southern California, Breanna began her dance training at age thirteen at the Idyllwild Arts Academy, a private boarding school in her hometown of Idyllwild. After graduating the top of her class, she chose to attend Southern Methodist University, encouraged by artistic and academic scholarships. During her dance training at SMU she performed works by Martha Graham, Maurice Bejart, Carla Maxwell, William Forsythe and Max Stone. Summer 2006, she performed the Japanese Butoh piece by choreographer Takuya Muramatsu in the International Choreographer's Commissioning Project in Durham, North Carolina.
She also worked with choreographer Alison Chase, co-founder of Pilobolus Dance Company, on a site specific work called Quarryography appropriately performed in a granite quarry in Stonington, Maine. She continued her work with Ms. Chase the following summer. She gained valuable experience in the unique Pilobolus style of movement including harness suspension work. She was a valuable contributor to the Dance Theatre of Harlem in New York City when she worked as a marketing consultant through the Corporate Communications and Public Affairs division of SMU.
She was a consistent contributor to the student choreography program during her four years at SMU, she was the artistic director of the senior dance concert Common Thread: Sharp Show 2008, and was instrumental to the development of a new class, Video Dance Workshop. Most recently, Breanna is choreographing and dancing in a series of commercials for Puma Athletic Wear.
