ORLANDO, FL — VHB welcomes Sunserea (Dalton) Gates, PE, as Senior Project Manager in the Orlando Transportation Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) group. Gates will help VHB clients navigate the social, environmental, and economic effects of critical transportation projects while providing National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) experience, perspective, and depth of knowledge. She will mentor a growing PD&E team focused on enhancing transportation and mobility solutions with environmental excellence.

Gates has more than 21 years of experience helping clients and communities implement planning and environmental studies for major expressways, highways, and rail corridor transportation projects. Her experience encompasses all phases of the project development process, from planning and construction management to grant development and oversight.

"VHB's Florida PD&E/NEPA practice is growing, and the addition of Sunserea to our team adds one of the most innovative and inspired in the industry," said Amy Sirmans, Director of PD&E/NEPA Services.

Sunserea earned her Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from the University of Central Florida and is a licensed Professional Engineer in Florida. She serves as the Southeast Region President for the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) and has served on the ASHE Central Florida Section Board for more than 12 years.
