This December, Christmas came early for Jenny Adkins, who received notification that she earned certification as a Professional Wetland Scientist! The certification is managed by the Society of Wetland Scientists, a terrific resource for scientific literature and management practices for wetland conservation and restoration. Jenny has worked with us for nearly 8 years and park districts in Miami and Montgomery County prior to joining our team. In her time at MAD, she has become specialized in plant identification and restoration planting plans, as well as wetland delineations and monitoring. She also heads MAD’s educational endeavors, leading classroom and community events at wetlands and professional development programs for teachers.

Congratulations on this achievement, Jenny!

MAD Welcomes P.E., Terry O’Malley (…again!)


Terry is a Professional Engineer with a background in hydraulic modeling, remediation, dam safety, and stormwater pollution prevention. She is MAD’s first P.E., but it’s not the first time she has worked for us! Interestingly, Terry originally worked with MAD as an intern in 2011 while transitioning to a new career field. She is a welcomed addition to our team, and we look forward to tackling new projects together!

MAD welcomes two new staff members!
