What’s something you’d like to learn?
How to speak Spanish fluently. My husband and I really enjoy traveling (especially to Central America). I know a little Spanish but I’ve always wanted to be fluent in it.
Where’s the most interesting place you’ve been?
Rome – There was so much to see with so much history.
What are three things you can’t live without?
The ocean, dark chocolate, and my family (my husband Jeff, and two daughters, Colby and Kai).
For Jamie, an Associate Project Manager in the Energy Group, there have been a lot of fond memories to reflect on since her start at McCormick Taylor in 2014. One of her favorites is getting on stage at the annual Employee Recognition Dinner (ERD) with a colleague to sing “Don’t Stop Believin”, which they did 3 years in a row.
As a Water Resources Engineer in our Salisbury, Maryland office, Jamie’s role doesn’t involve singing, but she finds enjoyment in her daily work, the diversity of the projects, and the challenges that come with each. Her role continues to grow and involves permitting, agency coordination, client/owner coordination, and site design for natural gas and electric utility projects throughout Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Her work focuses on the engineering and design of Stormwater Management features, Hydrology and Hydraulic Analysis for a multitude of projects, and Engineering and Design of Erosion and Sediment Control plans for both linear and site design projects.
One of the projects Jamie is working on is a substation flood mitigation project in Prince George’s County. Currently, she and the team are working to provide three options to protect critical electrical equipment in the substation during flood events. Jamie’s experience, Master of Science in Environmental Engineering, and Bachelor's Degree in Biology also help as she coaches and mentors other staff.
When not at work, Jamie can likely be found enjoying some of her hobbies, which she says include “wrangling my two toddlers, running, surfing, and taking care of plants”. Some might be surprised to learn she has competed at four (4) USLA National Lifeguard Championships. She represented Sussex County (DE) in multiple races including Surf Boat, Paddle Board, Ironwoman, Surfski, Beach Flags, and Run Relay.
