In response to EnSafe’s growing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and ecological workload, EnSafe is excited to announce the recent addition of Joyce Barkley to the EnSafe team. As a Senior Environmental Scientist, Joyce brings over 27 years of environmental and planning experience, much of which has been focused on Department of Transportation (DOT) and site planning/development.
Joyce’s core areas of expertise include protected species assessments, aquatic resources, public outreach, environmental justice, and grant writing, along with other NEPA resource areas at the federal, state, and local levels. The recent passing of the federal infrastructure bill and an influx of governmental private-sector contract awards has increased the need and opportunities for these particular services, and Joyce’s expertise will enable EnSafe to meet those demands.
“We are so excited to have Joyce on our team,” said Paul Stoddard, PG, Vice President of Field Services. “Her extensive understanding of NEPA regulations and requirements and her broad range of experience will prove to be an asset as we continue to pursue federal, state, and local work.”
Prior to coming to EnSafe, Joyce spent nearly three decades conducting NEPA evaluations and environmental studies in the public sector for tribal, state, and federal agencies. In Joyce’s professional career, she has more than eight years working with state DOTs (VA, LA, MD, DE, FL) and has extensive experience with threatened and endangered species consultation, wetland delineations, and habitat assessments as well as the NEPA process.
