Kristina Gifford

Environmental Planner & Regulatory Specialist

I’ve been helping others get permits and environmental clearance for more than 25 years; no two projects have ever been the same. It’s rewarding to help my colleagues and clients navigate the permitting process and realize their projects. I’m also Herrera’s lead technical editor, so I get to learn a lot about what our engineers and scientists are doing. I enjoy birding (sometimes for my job!), being outdoors, reading, traveling, and learning.
