Ms. Newcomb joins the firm's Los Angeles Office as a Supervising Archaeologist/Project Manager and will help to grow and lead our cultural resources practice in the utility market for southern California.

Ken brings 24 years' professional experience in cultural resources management and extensive experience in all aspects of fieldwork, laboratory analysis, and report preparation. He has been an author, project manager, field supervisor, and laboratory supervisor for Phase 1 archaeological surveys, extended Phase 1 testing programs, Phase 2 significance evaluations, Phase 3 data recovery mitigation programs, and archaeological monitoring at prehistoric and historic archaeological sites in coastal, foothill, and desert regions of southern and central California; on San Clemente Island; and in northwestern Arizona. 

Ms. Jordan joins the firm's Sacramento Office as a Cultural Resources Director and will be helping us grow our presence in northern California. As a registered professional archaeologist, Nichole has over 16 years of experience in cultural resources management including project management, Native American consultation, archival research, laboratory analysis, collections management, and GIS applications.

She has extensive experience managing large-scale projects for public and private clients, including flood control, water and wastewater utilities, transportation, master-planned communities, and conservation planning projects. Combining expertise in environmental documentation, biological resources, and regulatory permitting, Sherri's in-depth understanding of how environmental regulations interrelate helps clients prepare a strategic approach to permitting and documentation for greater project advancement and cost-effectiveness.
