I am thrilled to join MRA as an Environmental Consultant and look forward to applying my skills and expertise to assist our clients in meeting their resource recovery goals.

Jessica experience in speech pathology, working to effectively translate complex scientific concepts into easily comprehended communications for a range of audiences, will add a new and exciting skillset to MRa’s education team.

Joining MRA Consulting Group is an exciting opportunity to work with local governments and other operators who implement waste solutions that are vital to building the resilient and sustainable communities I am passionate about. I am proud to be working with such a respected group of consultants and look forward to making an impact.
