Today we recognize and celebrate Jennifer Gilpin’s 15-year anniversary with HRA. Jen began at HRA as an archaeologist, just having come off working the lengthy lab process at the Tse-whit-zen excavations, the large Lower Elwha Klallam village site in Port Angeles, and she was anxious for some fieldwork. She got it—years of fieldwork in which she worked her way up from survey crew member to crew leader to Field Director and Project Manager—becoming one of HRA’s most dependable contributors to all aspects of the projects she worked on. Jen has always shown a serious focus on the well-being of archaeologists in the course of our project work and was one of the first HRA staff to become HAZWOPER certified as our work increasingly encountered projects that sought to renovate lands once considered too contaminated from previous uses to be redeveloped, but as land has become scarce in the Puget Sound area, these areas are now commonly being redeveloped. A few years ago, we found an opportunity to convert Jen’s concern and accumulated knowledge about worker safety into a new career direction for her as HRA’s Health & Safety Manager. She threw herself into the task and has rewritten our expectations for the job description several times through education, training, and experiences on projects. HRA thanks Jen for all she has brought to HRA over the last 15 years!
