Michael Whitehead, the owner of Whitehead E.

S.

Michael was born in Tampa and attended Plant High School and completed degrees in Soil Science and Soil Chemistry at the University of Florida.  Michael has worked on a number of projects in Florida including Phase I ESAs and underground storage tank (UST) cases related to former filling stations and convenience stores.
