Megan Regel Jones (MS Geology, 2013)

Environmental Consultant in Seattle, Washington

After finishing my thesis for my MS, I took a bit of time off.

I'm currently an environmental consultant with DNV GL, based in Seattle, doing environmental and permitting due diligence for utility-scale wind and solar farms across the US and Canada. I'm slowly becoming an expert in environmental and permitting requirements in all 50 states, but especially Texas, California, Iowa, and Oklahoma, where renewable energy systems are growing quickly!

Much of my work involves reviewing and writing technical reports for financial lenders who are not well versed in technical scientific reports. I certainly wouldn't have gotten where I am without the writing courses at CWU!

I haven't given up on the thought of pursuing a PhD- I really miss doing research. But for now, I'm very happy living and working in Seattle!
