Woolpert Welcomes Megan Blaskovich, Geospatial Project Manager for Maritime Solutions
DAYTON, Ohio (Aug. 12, 2019) — Woolpert has hired Geospatial Project Manager Megan Blaskovich for its Maritime Solutions market. Blaskovich has overseen all phases of tasking for clients that include the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office of Coastal Management (OCM) and National Geodetic Survey (NGS), and the District of Columbia’s Office of the Chief Technology Office (DCOCTO).
Blaskovich has more than a decade of experience as a project manager, geospatial systems analyst and geographic information system (GIS) specialist. She is proficient in lidar, ifsar, and orthoimagery capture and processing, as well as GRAV-D (Gravity for the Redefinition of the American Vertical Datum), and shoreline mapping.
She said she was drawn to Woolpert by the firm’s experience with NOAA, its growth, culture and reputation.
“Woolpert is among the emerging leaders in the industry, and there’s a real excitement here,” she said. “They are always a part of the next big thing, be it lidar, drones, rapid response, imagery, weights and sensors, data quality, (etc.). Competition is driving the better product, and Woolpert is increasingly leading the pack.”
Blaskovich credited this to the staff’s ability to bring a wide range of ideas together to find the best, often out-of-the-box solutions specific to each client.
“Because Woolpert is AEG (architecture, engineering and geospatial), they understand the breadth of the needs of their end user,” she said. “They can acquire the data, develop the software, provide the infrastructure support and implement the asset management systems. It’s a trickle-down effect. Engineers and analysts at all levels—from NOAA at the federal level to rural county planners—are using geospatial data, and Woolpert has the team in-house who know what they need.”
Woolpert Maritime Solutions Market Director John Gerhard said Blaskovich will raise the firm’s ability to best serve its federal and international clients.
“Megan is well-respected throughout the industry and has forged vital relationships with geospatial decision-makers at multiple federal agencies,” Gerhard said. “We value the depth of the experience she brings to the firm as well as her vast potential. I welcome Megan to Woolpert and look forward to working with her.”
Originally from upstate New York, Blaskovich has lived in Maryland for the last 10 years. She will work out of Woolpert’s Dayton, Ohio, headquarters. She said she’s looking forward to her role with the firm.
“I’m focused on moving things ahead, forging strong relationships and making advancements,” Blaskovich said. “Geospatial mapping continues to pervade all of our lives, from our personal phones to our national security. I’m ready to collaborate and brainstorm with the Woolpert staff to find new and creative solutions.”
