Christy Mower brings 21 years of experience to CEC’s Pittsburgh office, where she is a Principal in our Ecological Sciences practice. Christy specializes in aquatic resource restoration and compensatory mitigation, having designed over 30 miles of stream restoration and over 100 acres of wetland restoration during her career as part of multi-disciplinary teams. She has designed, provided construction oversight, and monitored aquatic resources throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Midwest.
Beginning her career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries Department, Christy has in-depth regulatory experience to help clients navigate difficult local, state, and federal permitting projects. While working for one of the largest energy industries in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, her knowledge and understanding of major decision-making strategies will provide valuable insight to improve short- and long-term cost savings because she understands industry priorities, goals, and objectives. She provides extensive hands-on technical and advisory skills to produce high-quality deliverables with exceptional efficiency, while mentoring staff to build depth of the team.
A Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner, Certified Fisheries Professional, and Certified Ecologist, Christy has her Level IV Rosgen Training, 38-hour Wetland Delineation Training, WVDNR Fish and Benthic Macroinvertebrate Certification, WV-WRAM Training, and has taken over 80 additional hours of specialized stream design training, led by experts in the fields of process-based geomorphic analysis and natural channel design techniques. Being an invited speaker at specialized conferences throughout the country, while publishing scientific papers, she thrives on sharing her knowledge and being part of the growing ecological restoration industry. Christy is dedicated, focused, and committed to providing exceptional service to CEC’s clients. In addition to her technical skill, her enthusiasm and love for what she does will be an asset to any project she works on.
