He received his Juris Doctor from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and his Bachelor of Science in industrial engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Joyce Munie, P.E., recently joined the Chicago office of Andrews Engineering after retiring from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In her tenure at the EPA, she held several positions, most recently the Land Permit Section Manager. In that position she was responsible for managing a professional staff of up to seven units of engineers and geologists who were tasked with reviewing permit applications for hazardous and non-hazardous waste management sites throughout the state to determine compliance with the Illinois EPA and Federal rules and sound engineering practice, including: RCRA Subtitle C & D; State solid waste regulation of transfer and treatment with Beneficial Use Determinations; and Clean Construction and Demolition Debris including Uncontaminated Soil Fill Operations. Ms. Munie was also responsible for continual review of the regulations, proposing changes, developing policy, and procedures to implement changes.
