Hart Crowser









In Seattle, Hart Crowser promoted Brice Exley to senior associate and Joni Keppler and Ernest Pascua to associate. The firm also hired Andrew Kaparos as an associate environmental engineer, Margot Ferencz as a geotechnical engineer, Maggie Bradshaw as an environmental scientist and Andrew Nakahara and Jolie Higgins as environmental engineers.

Exley is a geotechnical engineer hired eight years ago. He is project manager for geotechnical design for the new Seattle Center Arena, and the 850-foot-tall Rainier Square tower, soon to be Seattle's second-tallest building. Keppler was hired 18 years ago and is accounting database manager, supporting all departments. She maintains the company's enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management software, which are integrated across its nine offices. Pascua, financial statement manager, was hired 20 years ago. He is responsible for generating and analyzing Hart Crowser's accounting and financial records and for reports to management on the financial operations of the company, as well as maintaining proper revenue recognition on projects of the business units.

Kaparos rejoined the firm and will work on stormwater management and environmental cleanup projects. His 13 years of experience includes stormwater management systems, hydraulic and hydrologic computer modeling, contaminated site remediation, and environmental permitting. His work on brownfield sites has helped put previously contaminated properties back into productive use, and he has worked with industry to reduce stormwater runoff with sustainable techniques.

Ferencz has a master's in geology from Rutgers University. Her focus is on foundation design and landslide remediation. She has worked internationally. Bradshaw has experience in environmental cleanup and geographic information systems. She has a bachelor's in conservation resources from the University of California, Berkeley, and a certificate in wetland science and management from the University of Washington. She will work on environmental assessment and cleanup projects. She previously provided support to the EPA on the Lower Duwamish Waterway Superfund site.

Nakahara has a master's in civil and environmental engineering from the UW and a background in environmental site assessment and remediation, GIS, data analysis, and the transport of chemicals in the environment. Higgins has a master's in civil/environmental engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She has a background in water quality involving stormwater and ocean acidification. She co-founded a coastal erosion project in Mali Island, Fiji.
