Rebecca Higgins, P.E.

Principal Consultant, Geotechnical and Environmental Engineering

More than 20 years into her career, Rebecca loves that she still learns new things every day. Her passion for geotechnical and environmental work includes integrating technology into projects, such as using database systems and Geographic Information System (GIS) software. GIS and subsurface visualization software help Rebecca and her teams interpret conditions related to complicated subsurface stratigraphy, groundwater levels, and soil and groundwater quality data. 

As a program manager, Rebecca enjoys the variety and complexity of her integrated geotechnical and environmental projects as well as the inspiration gained from her talented project teams. Clients appreciate Rebecca’s teamwork approach and frequent communication. Listening carefully and engaging her project team help Rebecca ensure she provides resources and solutions that meet each client’s needs.

“I love being able to watch a project from the beginning – from a messy, worn-down, dilapidated brownfield site to a beautiful new building that people call their home, office, or lab.”
