Please welcome, Christa Redd, who recently joined Drake Haglan & Associates (DHA) as a Senior Environmental Project Manager. With 20 years’ experience providing CEQA and NEPA compliance throughout California, Christa has expertise working in Caltrans Districts 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 12 and will provide DHA clients experience, knowledge, and ability to effectively navigate through the Caltrans environmental process. She has consistently worked on both Local Assistance and Caltrans-lead projects.
Christa’s college career led her to Oregon State University where she received a BS in Environmental Science, UC Davis Extension where she earned a Certificate in Land Use and Environmental Planning, and University of Nevada, Reno where she earned a MS in Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences.
Throughout her career, Christa provided project analysis and management for a variety of CEQA and/or NEPA projects including transportation (roadways and bridges) to residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, alternative energy, and forest and watershed restoration projects. She has recently been involved with development application and land use regulation projects related to California’s commercial cannabis industry. Christa has worked on projects throughout California, as well as portions of Nevada and Arizona.
While camping, salsa dancing, and fly-fishing are her passions, Christa doesn’t get to do them very often. These days she can be found on the sidelines cheering on her boys’ soccer, basketball, and baseball teams, or shuttling them to scouting activities or music lessons. She has also learned to fully embrace college football season, having married into an LSU family.
We are excited to have Christa join the DHA team and look forward to her leadership with the continued growth of the DHA Environmental Group.
