Whether in the office or in the midst of a complex international response, Kawehilani “Lani” Dorow is known as “the go-person” by colleagues and clients alike. Her teammates often laud her efficient and effective training and response consultation services. They also recognize her as a gifted and organized Planning Section Chief who is able to ensure stakeholders’ objectives are addressed and met. And, as our Vice President of Emergency Response shared, “When the emergency response bench gets slim, Lani is always ready to go back on call.”

Lani initially joined our team as a part-time Rapid Responder while on summer break from her job as a chemistry teacher in Colorado. She later joined us full-time in Houston as an equipment specialist. Since then, she has excelled as part of our Toxicology Emergency Response Program as well as a Global Preparedness and Crisis Management Specialist and Environmental Scientist for CTEHRM.

We can’t wait to see what she will accomplish in her new role as Response Management Consultant. Congratulations on this well-deserved promotion, Lani!
