Coldwater Welcomes Jessica Looper and Jackson Caruso to our Team!

 Coldwater added Jessica Looper to our team in early September 2018. She has over 5 years of experience dedicated towards the integration of environmental preservation and urban development. She obtained her Bachelor and Master degrees from Auburn University in the field of Civil Engineering; focusing her research on soil bioremediation in relation to the Deep-water Horizon catastrophe in 2010.

Before joining us she worked in Maryland as a Coastal and Water Resources Engineer on environmental uplift and public access projects. She frequently enjoys the outdoors with her family by hiking, kayaking, cycling, running, or camping, and appreciates the opportunity to work on projects that encourage others to interact with the environment and promote a sense of responsibility for its well-being.
