When Senior Water Resources Engineer Jared Walter isn’t working on water rights, drinking water quality, or floodplain management, you can find him outdoors camping and exploring the mountains or deserts with his daughters.

Being able to utilize experience gained prior to Lamp Rynearson and apply that knowledge to a water system assessment experiencing aesthetic water quality problems. Congratulations Jared on your one year of service! #WorkHereGrowHere
Marketing Coordinator Nicholette Haigler seeks the big picture. With a background in nonprofits and education, she has an innate desire to contribute to a greater mission. Lamp Rynearson’s community-changing projects align with how she wants to spend her time and talent. Found at the frontend of a project, Nicholette organizes the proposal effort to win the work, often incorporating motion graphics! Video and animations are a skillset Nicholette has developed since joining our team to communicate Lamp Rynearson’s mission and project experience. This has been particularly handy as business development becomes increasingly more digital. Finally seeing the projects brought to life that she helped pursue gives her a sense of pride and ownership in the firm’s engineering services.
A personal aspiration of hers is to illustrate and publish a children’s book. Having benefited from her creative genius and artistic abilities, we’re looking forward to the day when we quite literally find Nicholette’s “big picture” on the shelf. Happy one-year anniversary, Nicholette! #WorkHereGrowHere

“I am very proud of my entire career at Lamp Rynearson;” He said, “however, I have been so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of people I don’t feel that I personally accomplished anything.

Thank you, Tom for always being an amazing coworker, and congratulations on 20 years of service! #WorkHereGrowHere
Family and friends are important for Elizabeth Vacek, who loves nothing more than a board game night spent with her favorite people. She joined the Lamp Rynearson team as a college intern, applying after a family member started talking about the great people he met from the civil engineering firm his company was working with. Five years later, she is a Senior Project Engineer on the Lamp Rynearson Transportation Engineering team and couldn’t be happier with her choice. Elizabeth is proud of all she’s learned and accomplished over the past five years, but the moments that stick out to her as she looks back are those she’s spent with the coworkers who have become friends. As she looks to the future, she can’t wait to learn and grow in her career even more – all while enjoying game nights with the family who introduced her to us and the friends she’s met along the way. #WorkHereGrowHere

If we’ve learned anything about Zack Fergus over the past five years, it’s that his energy for creating cool, “people-centric” spaces is unmatched! As a Senior Landscape Architect, Zack takes pride in truly partnering with clients. It comes naturally for him – he can’t help being as excited (sometimes even more so!) as the project owner, watching conceptual sketches progress into real-life places. Creating beautiful, safe environments for people to live, work, and enjoy is what fills Zack’s cup. Where does this talented landscape architect find his inspiration? Traveling, specifically road trips, with his family of four! As a parent, experiencing the world through the eyes of two seven-year-old girls is revitalizing and a source of creative perspective for him as he imagines new places. Happy 5-year anniversary, Zack! #WorkHereGrowHere
