As a longtime Bel Air resident, Stephanie Hau is determined to help improve Harford County. As a geologist, she is fascinated by applying geographic data to help local jurisdictions better plan and build. Chesapeake Environmental Management, the company she started with her husband in 1993, does both. CEM, which was recently named the fastest-growing woman-owned business in the Baltimore region, has a mission to “apply practical science to improve communities.” CEM projects “run the gamut of all kinds of data collection, data analysis and presenting data in a meaningful way,” says Hau.
