Senior Vice President
As Senior Vice President, Chris offers a unique mix of public and private experience as she guides our team in the infrastructure and transportation space. With more than 35 years of experience leading communications and marketing strategy, community engagement, and business development, she is impactful in building trust with stakeholders, the media, and the community.
Chris’s background includes a 25-year career in print journalism; serving as Communications Director and Public Information Officer for a transit agency; and providing strategic direction for business growth for two engineering firms. Her passion for leadership and mentorship enable teams to do their best work for clients while also reaching their own goals. She is also a fierce advocate for public participation in projects that impact and improve our communities.
Outside of work, Chris enjoys reading, yoga, visiting wineries with her husband, and perfecting (ha!) her golf swing.
