Andrew Wheeler, has been nominated by President Trump to serve as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Wheeler, has been acting as the agency’s interim director since the summer, after former administrator Scott Pruitt, resigned in July.
Wheeler worked at the EPA in the 1990s, and was later a staffer for Senator Jim Inhofe. He later lobbied for energy companies such as Murray Energy Corp and Xcel Energy. Prior to his appointment as the top official at the EPA, he had been the agency’s deputy administrator for several months.
Born Andrew R. Wheeler on December 23, 1964; the Ohio native attended Case Western Reserve University and holds a dual degree in English and Biology. He later earned his law degree from Washington University in St. Louis and also holds an MBA from George mason University.
Prior to joining the Trump administration, Wheeler represented Murray Energy since 2009, a coal-based energy company based in Ohio, while working for Faegre Baker Daniels, a lobbying firm.
Wheeler also previously worked in the office of pollution prevention in the EPA during President George Bush’s administration as a special assistant. He received three bronze medals for his work in the Bush administration, according to his EPA bio.
Additionally, Wheeler has worked as the Majority Staff Director and Chief Counsel of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. And before that, he worked for on the Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate Change, Wetlands and Nuclear Safety.
He has been one secretive fella when it comes to personal matters, specifically matters of the heart. At 53, he is believed to have never been married and he doesn’t have any children either.
It looks like Andrew Wheeler has instead, kept his focus solemnly, on his career –as there is no indication of him being in a current or even old romantic relationship. The question remains, who is Andrew Wheeler’s Wife? Is he even married?
