Jackie Gonzales


Historian - Albany Office

Jackie joined HRA in 2016, after completing her PhD in environmental history at the University at Albany. Her dissertation, “Coastal Parks for a Metropolitan Nation: How Postwar Politics and Urban Growth Shaped America’s Shores,” examined the politics and legacy of federal coastal conservation initiatives. Before joining HRA, Jackie worked for the National Park Service as an interpretive employee at several sites and for several environmental policy organizations in Albany, New York.

At HRA, Jackie conducts research in support of environmental litigation, including locating historic records to determine site ownership, historic sources of contamination, and locate potentially responsible parties.

In addition to environmental litigation work, Jackie has researched and written several administrative histories and narrative histories for the National Park Service. She also conducts oral histories, develops content for interpretive exhibits, and utilizes her expertise in environmental history to contribute to natural and cultural resources management projects.
