Meet ECR Logic
Environmental and Cultural Research Logic (ECR Logic), LLC, is an Iowa-based company founded in 2016 after the successful completion of the University of Iowa's Faculty Innovators and Venture School training programs. John Doershuk, Mary De La Garza, Elizabeth Reetz, and Rebecca Gansemer were awarded "Best Business Opportunity" in their Venture School cohort.
We believe in the importance of laws and regulations protecting natural and cultural resources and that efficient environmental compliance is critical for sustainable infrastructure and quality of life. As funding cuts and deregulatory pressures continue to grow, environmental consultants are pressured to do more with less. Our goal as a small business is to create innovative field work and workflow solutions to reduce and/or eliminate time/data/cost-related inefficiencies so that we can retain the needed natural and cultural resources protections.
ECR Logic founders are reliable and knowledgeable environmental professionals who have decades of experience in the field. John and Elizabeth are both professional archaeologists with extensive field work and project management experience who have worked for state agencies, federal agencies, and private consulting firms. Mary has been working alongside professional archaeologists as their IT point person for nearly 20 years, innovating new technological approaches to archaeological fieldwork and research databases.
Our team also includes early career professionals who have experience in GIS, archaeology, digital data management, and programming.
John is a leader in his field, with 40+ years of experience in scientific fieldwork, research, and administration. As CEO, John leads ECR Logic's business organization and finances.
Elizabeth has nearly 20 years of experience in scientific fieldwork and research, team management, and program development. She specializes in research, networking, customer discovery, and administration.
