BELLEVUE, WA Julie Hampden joins HNTB Corporation's growing Environmental Planning practice as Science Project Manager, serving as one of the firm's Endangered Species Act leaders. She will provide consultation for ESA compliance for clients in the Pacific Northwest, helping advance projects when ESA-listed species are of concern in project areas.

"Julie offers a rare set of skills - she is both an adept business manager and a passionate environmental expert," said Allison Hanson, HNTB Environmental Department Manager. "With Julie on our team, HNTB's clients not only have a trusted adviser to help meet ESA requirements, they have a resource who understands business processes and truly cares about the region's environmental well-being."
While working for the Seattle environmental consulting firm, Hampden's diverse experiences included serving as a place-based ESA biologist at Washington State Department of Transportation; an interagency liaison at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service completing transportation-related consultations; and consulting for a variety of municipal, state, federal and private clients.
