Josselyn Lucas

- Project Manager & Sr. Environmental Specialist (QHP,WPIT)

“I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors. As a kid, I spent my summers flipping rocks in the creek next to my childhood home looking for salamanders and crawdads. I consider myself lucky to work in a field that allows me to realize my passion for nature through the enhancement and improvement of the sensitive habitats of the Appalachians. When I’m not working I’m playing with my dog, hiking, kayaking or just enjoying my downtime.”
