Amber Smith, Director of Environmental Services, Mapistry

Amber spent most of her adolescent years living in the small mountain town of Big Bear, California. This was where she developed her love for the environment and pledged her life to protecting it, Captain Planet-style.

Over the past four years, she has prepared countless Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans and trained over 300 facilities on stormwater requirements in both classroom and field settings. She prides herself on bringing awareness to stormwater pollution issues and solving problems for facilities and staff that often have core responsibilities in manufacturing and are not environmental specialists.

She holds a dual degree in Environmental Science and Geology from California State University East Bay, and an M.S. in Environmental Science and Policy from John Hopkins University.

Allie Janoch, CEO of Mapistry

Allie is currently the CEO and Co-Founder of Mapistry. After getting her B.S. in Computer Science from the U. of Maryland and her M.S. in Computer Science at U.C. Berkeley, Allie joined IQ Engines to work on image recognition. After Yahoo acquired IQ Engines in 2013, Allie worked on integrating IQ Engines’ machine-learning algorithms into Flickr. But she soon grew restless, and began searching for a product she could be passionate about.

As an avid hiker, Allie saw environmental protection as a noble pursuit — and quickly she discovered that helping businesses comply with environmental regulations was an underserved opportunity. She left Yahoo to found Mapistry in 2013 with Ryan. Allie has published and presented on her computer vision and machine-learning research in multiple publications and conferences. She also holds a patent on Automatic Image Piling, and was named one of the Top 30 Under 30 by GreenBiz.
