I have been a professional archaeologist since I received my Masters in Anthropology/Archaeology from the University of Arizona in 1975. For much of my career, I worked for cultural resource management (CRM) firms. Beginning in 2006, I served as a Senior Project Manager/Cultural and Natural Resources at an architectural/engineering firm. Today, I am retired from full-time work but continuing to do occasional consultations and volunteer projects. During my career, I completed CRM studies as the Principal Investigator and/or Project Manager in 16 states including New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. In addition, I have worked in New York City over the last decade and in 2018 was a member of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission 4-person team that revised the LPC Archaeological Guidelines.
Throughout my career I have completed Phase I through III projects and have been responsible for project types ranging from two-person efforts to the oversight of 70 archaeologists and almost two dozen architect historians during a 400+ mile natural gas pipeline corridor project. Many of the projects were completed for compliance purposes for local, state, and federal-level projects. At the federal level, I led projects under the jurisdiction of the United States Bureau of Land Management, Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and US Coast Guard.
