Nick started his journey at Luthin Associates in January 2019 as part of the Energy and Sustainability Services Department.

Nick graduated from Saint Peter’s University, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a concentration in Environmental Science. He then attended Montclair State University and earned his Master of Science degree in Sustainability Science. During his time at 5, Nick also received an Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP) Certification from the Association of Energy Engineers.

I get to utilize my skills while simultaneously improving and learning new ones. There is no other place where I can thrive like I do at 5."
