We are happy to announce that MJ’s Ashley Metz has recently received her wetlands delineation certificate from Rutgers University. This course satisfies the requirements for basic wetland delineation training specified by the US Army Corps of Engineers and certification programs in most states. Ashley now has the practical training, regulatory background, and certification to identify the vegetation, soils, and hydrology that define wetlands and the methods for making jurisdictional determinations.
Ashley joined MJ in 2020 and has worked on a variety of projects for state, municipal and private clients. She was recently involved in survey and mapping services for the development of the new Cider Solar Farm, a 500-megawatt photovoltaic solar energy facility, in Genesee County.
“Ashley’s enthusiasm and willingness to take on new challenges were evident from her first days here at MJ. Whether assigned field duties, document research or mapping, she has always demonstrated a strong work ethic. This holds true away from the office as well where she gives back to the profession, volunteering her time and talents as a member of the Young Professionals Committee for NYSAPLS. This is a tremendous accomplishment for Ashley. There is no limit to what she can achieve.” – Joseph Malinowski, PLS, Director of Survey Services
Ashley has received a BA in environmental studies from Siena College, a BS in environmental studies from SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry, and an AAS in land surveying technology from the ESF Ranger School. She is also an active member of the NYS Association of Professional Land Surveyors Young Professionals Committee. The committee is dedicated to engaging, developing, and mentoring young professionals and students in the surveying profession.
