Donovan started at Barnard & Gervais in 2020 as a survey technician and studied for his wastewater design license which he received in 2021. His role has now become more focused on permitting and designing residential subdivisions. He is also responsible for delineating wetlands and works with the Vermont DEC and US Army Corps of Engineers to permit impact and conserve wetlands in Vermont.
Before Barnard & Gervais, he studied environmental science and geospatial technologies at the University of Vermont. After college, he pursued one of his passions in the skydiving industry as an accelerated free fall instructor. This work took him around the country as he worked on different contracts. He now lives in Waterbury and loves to ski in the winters and jump in the summers.
