Abbey Environmental Management, Inc. (AEM) is the brainchild of Michael Schluterbusch. This is the latest version of an Environmental Consulting Firm that began in 1988 with MNS Enterprises. Michael was the sole proprietor and pretty much did everything necessary for any project. Kathleen Flanagan and Michael began a cooperative business relationship in the early 2000’s, when she served up her expertise in anything computer-driven, legal based, business back-office related knowledge. The second iteration was Annectens Environmental Management, named after an age-old, tough-as-nails lungfish. Who knew at that time that the Crash of 2008 was looming in the near future, and that type of survivalist mentality would be sorely needed? Kathleen also began to take on some of the field responsibility around 2010.
