In her six years with Raftelis, she has consulted with numerous local governments on projects related to stormwater program development and review, and stormwater utility feasibility, development, implementation, and reorganization studies. Jennifer has also worked with water and sewer utilities on a wide variety of projects – from rate development and affordability analysis to revenue loss investigations – all with the common thread of being driven by existing utility data and designed to positively impact utility performance and management.
