She specializes in hydraulics and hydrologic analysis and is responsible for stormwater management design and flood studies for the site design and water resource services offered by Landmark.  Dakota earned a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering degree, with a concentration in Water Resources and Water Quality and a minor in Civil Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2012. She is an active member of ACEC Delaware and serves as chairperson for Education/Public Relations Committee, which awards engineering scholarships and helps promote engineering as a career choice.

John Gonzalez, P.E., CPSWQ, branch manager of the Aberdeen Office, is “excited to add a new Maryland P.E. licensee to our staff” and believes that “Dakota brings real value in water resources engineering that will be beneficial to our stream and stormwater/drainage restoration/stabilization projects in Maryland.”
