Ms. Young supports Marstel-Day’s National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Program. She applies subject matter expertise in characterizing air quality, geological resources, and water resources, and analyzing potential impacts on those resources. In addition, Ms. Young prepares cumulative effects analyses, which consider whether the incremental impacts of individual projects could combine to result collectively in significant impacts. She is currently working on Environmental Assessments and NEPA support for Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington, Headquarters Marine Corps, and Department of Veterans Affairs.

She has over sixteen years of experience in supporting and managing Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements. She has worked on more than 75 NEPA documents for the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security, Department of Veteran’s Affairs, and other federal agencies across the Continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Guam. Ms. Young has also supported the development of a variety of other federal projects, including shoreline stabilization and restoration, Base Realignment and Closure, Enhanced Use Leasing, military mission conversions, and new development and redevelopment activities. She has prepared or assisted in the preparation of numerous NEPA documents, as well as Clean Air Act conformity applicability analyses, public involvement materials, and other ancillary environmental studies pursuant to NEPA.

Ms. Young graduated with a BS in environmental science with a concentration in aquatic resources from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). While in school, she worked as a research assistant for the Virginia Water Resources Research Center at Virginia Tech, and completed an internship with the Culpeper Soil and Water Conservation District.
