Gretchen Kayser

Project Engineer

At Herrera, I have the opportunity to improve the function of rivers, watersheds, and ecosystems. I was drawn to hydraulic modeling through my love of rivers and passion to help save the salmon. The best part of my job is getting to go out into the field and walk through riverine systems for hydraulic and geomorphology studies and data collection. Outside of work I can be found fly fishing, rock climbing, hiking, and coaching lacrosse.
