Bridgette Dorian is a native of the 5th Ward Community located in Houston, Texas. Born, raised and still a resident of the 5th Ward Community, Miss Dorian is no stranger to entrepreneurship or community service. Her family owned and operated the legendary C & L Shoe and Boot Repair shop that served the community for 50 years, her Dad Louis Dorian was the sole proprietor.


Insisting their children were educated in the Community in which they lived and worked, Bridgette attended Our Mother of Mercy Catholic School (grades K-8) and Phillis Wheatley High School (grades 10- 12). Bridgette’s career focus was Administration and Human Resources.

Continuing the family’s entrepreneurial spirit, Environmental Consultants and Management Services (ECMS, Inc) was founded by Bridgette’s brother Tyrone Dorian in 1993. In 1994, Bridgette joined the ECMS team in an administrative role that included Environmental Services Management and Administrative Services.

Seventeen years ago the two decided to move the business into the 5th Ward Community in the same building that was home to C & L Shoe and Boot Repair. Bridgette fulfills the role as Sr. Environmental Manager/Coordinator, with more than 15 years experience leading the Environmental Department in administrative, technical and field operational activities. These operations include conducting Environmental Site Assessments, specialized services necessary for Environmental Safety, evaluating survey projects and making recommendations to correct unsafe violations of federal and state environmental laws and tracks the progress, performances, budget and time line execution of each project.
