In the face of adversity, true leaders emerge. This has certainly been the case for Rheanna Neidinger, founder of Mountainview Biological Consulting (MVBC), a certified Woman Owned Business that provides professional biological and ecological consulting and support services. Neidinger's inspiring journey to environmental leadership is a testament to her unwavering dedication, resilience, and passion for protecting our planet.
Neidinger's path to environmental leadership began over 15 years ago when she started her career as a Wildlife biologist. Her love of nature and her desire to protect it led her to start MVBC, a consulting firm that focuses on providing high-quality ecological consulting services to businesses while helping them meet their diversity supplier goals. Despite starting the business with no capital, Neidinger's dedication and tireless work has grown MVBC to over 25 employees with over $2.2 million in revenue per year.
However, Neidinger's journey has not been without its challenges. From 2018 to 2020 she lived off-grid in the San Bernardino mountains with her family. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Neidinger and her husband were living in a trailer park in Crestline with their three children, one of whom was born just two weeks prior to the lockdowns. Like many working parents during this time, Neidinger and her husband lost their childcare, which left them in a difficult position. Instead of giving up, Neidinger and her husband leaned on each other and were able to grow their respective businesses despite adversity.
During their time off-grid and in the trailer park, Neidinger continued to work tirelessly to grow MVBC. She focused on building valuable relationships with clients, which has been a key factor in the company's success. Neidinger's ability to bring people together and inspire them to care about the environment has been a driving force behind MVBC's growth. Her dedication to community building is evident in her work with high school volunteers and Citizen Science projects, which bring together individuals who are enthusiastic about botany, ornithology, and terrestrial biology.
MVBC has been certified by several government agencies, including the California Department of Transportation, the California Public Utilities Commission, the California Department of General Services, and the California Department of Industrial Relations. As a sub-consulting firm, MVBC has assisted in a variety of business projects, making sure that environmental concerns are given credence and that projects are completed seamlessly with no environmental compliance stalling.
Neidinger's dedication to the environment and community is also reflected in her focus on the Inland Empire of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. MVBC does nesting bird surveys, biological resources assessment reports, biologist’s statement of habitat, compliance monitoring, jurisdictional delineations, special status species protocol surveys, and clearance surveys. Environmental monitoring and assessment efforts enable development to proceed with minimal impact to the region's protected resources.
Neidinger's journey from off-grid living to environmental leadership is an inspiring one. Her unwavering dedication to bring people together and to make a difference are qualities that make her a true leader. The success of MVBC is a testament to the power of hard work, resilience and an amazing team.
As we continue to face significant environmental challenges, leaders like Rheanna Neidinger are more important than ever. And that women business owners face unique challenges but through hard work they compete on the biggest stages. MVBC is an inspiration to aspiring female entrepreneurs.
