O'Donnell & Associates, Inc. is a small business by design allowing us to operate in an efficient manner with low overhead which in turn allows us to pass along savings to our clients. Our permanent full-time staff includes Nell and Dan O'Donnell.

Nell O'Donnell, RN, President and CFO

Nell is the majority owner of O'Donnell & Associates and has control of the "business" end of the firm. Nell's responsibilities include fiscal management, invoicing, health/insurance issues and budgeting. Outside of OAI activities, Nell received her RN from Mobile College and is a registered nurse working with the Mobile County Health Department. In her spare time she invloved with Cursillo, being grandma to Daniel and Sam and Nini to Irene, George and Cici and with church activities at St. Pius X Catholic Church.

Dan O'Donnell, PG, Hydrogeologist

Dan, a 1979 graduate of Auburn University (BS Geology), has since gone on to gather years of experience in a variety of geologic fields. He maintains professional geologist registrations in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Louisisana  and Mississippi. He is responsible for the technical aspects of the firm. Prior to 1990, he was a petroleum geoligist working in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Arkansas and off shore California and in the Gulf of Mexice.  In 1990, he returned to school at Oklahoma State University for OSU's graduate level hydrogeology program.  Since then, Dan's focus is hydrogeology; the research, exploration, development and management of groundwater resources. He has extensive experience with aquifers in the Coastal Plain. Outside of work, Dan is the past Grand Knight of Knights of Columbus Council #13085, is active in The Men of St. Joseph, Cursillo, and other church activities at St. Pius X Catholic Church. In his spare time he works very hard at spoiling his dog Walt Longmere, being papa to little Daniel, Sammy, Irene, George and Cici and enjoys conducting research on three shallow aquifer wells in his back yard.

Additional Expertise

Through teaming arrangements with a variety of firms including engineering firms, drilling contractors and private individuals. OAI has access to the services of PEs (including one who has completed 100+ public supply wells), drilling contractors, wetland specialists, developers, karst geologists, hazardous waste management specialists and a variety of technical support personnel. Again, by not having these highly qualified and experienced individuals "on staff", OAI is able to keep our costs down while being able to provide their expertise on a project specific/as needed basis.
