I have always enjoyed integrating interdisciplinary teams to solve complex challenges using advanced, but more user-friendly technologies. This passion, coupled with my love of writing, has made 30+ years of work in the environmental planning and impact assessment arena a natural fit for me.I joined AECOM in 2015 to grow our U.S. Federal Impact and Assessment and Permitting (IAP) practice because I see tremendous opportunity for AECOM in the IAP space. As recently featured in The Military Engineer magazine, we are quickly becoming the industry leader in streamlining the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) via “Digital NEPA.” Our innovative approach modernizes the process so that clients and stakeholders have interactive, user-friendly tools to make faster, better-informed decisions. My passions are well-matched with the company’s drive to grow and innovate while engaging on some of the most complex projects in the world. Happily, project work is still a critical part of my daily routine. I spend my days collaborating with staff throughout the company and across our robust IAP team. I’m motivated most by opportunities to grow our capabilities, tackle tough challenges, and mentor staff using a “people first” model that give me significant satisfaction. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my five children and two grandchildren. When I’m not at the gym or restoring my 120-year-old farmhouse, I like to travel to the Caribbean and Europe. Swimming with dolphins (pictured above) only happens on occasion.
