Peak Science Communications

Helping government agencies do more with less since 2007. 

Peak Science Communications (PSC) has built a reputation of providing excellent service and quality products to the Forest Service. Their core team includes highly experienced National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) specialists, technical writers and editors, and Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) leaders who specialize in a full range of Forest Service projects.

PSC has worked with Forests across the western United States through its 5 IDIQ Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts: 

  • Region 1 (2012–2015 [prime])
  • Region 3 (2018-2023 [prime])
  • Region 4 (2015-2020 [prime])
  • Region 5 (2017-2022 [subcontractor] and 2010–2015 [prime])
  • Region 6  (2015–2020 [prime])

To complete the often complex and diverse projects requested under this contract, PSC regularly collaborates with other small businesses with the expertise and depth to effectively complete any proposed project. You can read more about these partner companies on our About page. Having these additional members allows PSC to draw upon specialized resources on an as-needed basis, enabling us to meet our client’s budget and scheduling demands.

Our team provides all of the leadership, forestry, engineering, and resource expertise required by our clients, yet retains the personal, small-firm attention to detail and prompt client service. At PSC, we’ve proven that the right team of small businesses working together can successfully compete with any large firm.

We’ve had the pleasure of working for the following government agencies and corporations:

Nikole Pearson, Principal

Nikole’s best asset is her ability to assemble winning teams of environmental consulting professionals who excecute all project elements at the highest level. Her reputation of producing quality products, on time and within budget, have enabled her to successfully compete with much larger companies.

Nikole has over 15 years of environmental writing, editing, and meeting documentation experience. After working as an Associate Environmental Planner for the State of California, Environmental Protection Agency, Nikole moved to Idaho and, in 2007, launched PSC, a technical writing firm specializing in environmental documentation.

PSC has grown significantly since that time and now operates as a full-service environmental consulting firm. 

Often called, “the little company that could,” PSC is proud to be the only company awarded IDIQ contracts with Regions 1, 4, 5, and 6 of the Forest Service.

Jay Wilhite, Principal

Jay joined Peak Science Communications in 2014 and became a principal in 2017.

Jay brings over 20 years of computer programming and design experience to PSC. His duties at the company include developing and managing SharePoint sites and users for all PSC projects, creating client websites, and developing training. Jay’s speciality is using off-the-shelf software products to create unique and custom solutions. 

Jay was able to combine his technical knowledge with Nikole’s experience in the environmental consulting industry to completely revolutionize how PSC operates. Because he came from outside the environmental consulting industry, he knew that harnessing the power of technology was the only way PSC could compete with the much larger national firms that were–and still are–buying up other small firms and dominating the industry.

And now, Jay teaches other environmental consultants to do the same.
