Rajendra Sapkota

Project Engineer

“I grew up in a remote village of a country with plenty of Water Resource probabilities but spent all my school life under a kerosene lamp. I dreamed of becoming an engineer and working in the renewable energy sector. I found out that Kleinschmidt has a similar motive and plenty of knowledge gained by decades of experience to fulfill our dream.”

Jared Brown

Staff Engineer

“Kleinschmidt as a whole is made of up of individuals with an immense variety and depth of knowledge of the hydropower industry. But at their core, is a passion for solving challenging and impactful problems that strive to bring us closer to a renewable future. This combination of expertise and environmental motivation is why I love to work at Kleinschmidt, as it has inspired me to continually grow as an engineer and be passionate about the work I do.”

Isha Deo

Staff Engineer

“I love the variety of projects I get to work on at Kleinschmidt as an H&H engineer! I’m able to use various programs to solve complex problems and have the flexibility to find the best way to address a challenge. There is always an opportunity to try something new, and lots of expertise to help guide young professionals in the industry.”

Nicholas M. Ciomei, P.E.

Project Engineer

“I truly enjoy my work as a dam safety inspector as it affords me the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations I wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to visit. From helicopter inspections in Newfoundland, Canada to irrigation reservoir inspections located between cinder cones on the Island of Hawaii, and everywhere in between, Kleinschmidt has provided work experiences I will never forget.”

Jillian Davis

Project and Risk Management Division Section Manager

“By focusing on what’s best for Kleinschmidt, I’ve built a career here that is exciting, enjoyable, successful, and well-balanced. I am passionate about Project Management and being in a leadership position where I can work collaboratively with others and continually strive to deliver beyond expectations to our company, our teammates, and our clients.”

Steve Meicke, P.E.

Sr. Mechanical Engineer

“My favorite aspect of my job is teamwork – I love sitting down with our clients and working with them together to find solutions to the problems that keep them up at night. The collaboration with client engineers, plant staff, biologists, scientists, and Kleinschmidt’s own talented staff is what animates me as an engineer.”

Alex Malvezzi

Staff Scientist/Fisheries Biologist

“For me, the best part about working at Kleinschmidt is the variety of projects I am able to work on. One day I am on the boat tagging and tracking fish up the river, while the next I can be found in the wetlands helping our terrestrial biologists identify and GPS invasive plants. I find it fulfilling to work at a firm that is progressive and strives to come up with solutions for today’s complicated environmental issues.”

Kim Fitzgibbons

Principal Consultant

“I have spent my career helping clients navigate the NEPA and permitting processes for large complex projects, and I am excited to merge that experience with my academic background in, and passion for, the marine environment. Kleinschmidt was founded on promoting renewable energy, and has been engaged in the offshore wind market since its inception in the US. I am fortunate to be part of an organization that is so visionary and embraces the merits of renewable energy as a core business.”
