Five years ago, HRA made the fantastic decision to hire Jackie Gonzales, who was then a newly minted PhD historian from the University of Albany, State University of New York. After working for the National Park Service (NPS) as an interpretive historian and at several environmental policy organizations in Albany, Jackie made the cross-country trek to join our historians and archaeologists in HRA’s Seattle office, where she quickly proved herself invaluable on a variety of projects ranging from NPS administrative histories to litigation support cases involving contaminated sites. In addition to serving as the lead author on HRA’s award-winning NPS publication “Commemoration and Collaboration: An Administrative History of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail,” Jackie has been instrumental in building an impressive backlog of NPS projects for the History Division, as well as traveling cross-country again (and coming full circle) to start HRA’s first-ever New York-based office in Albany. Please join us in congratulating Jackie on a fabulous five years at HRA, and here’s hoping for many more to come!
