December 4, 2017: We're Growing Here at Lotus!

This fall, Lotus Environmental Consulting, LLC welcomed two new employees, Gabrielle and Rachel. Gabrielle Vicari, our new Architectural Historian, will be working in our Cultural Resources department, with a focus on above ground historic structures.  Our new Marketing Coordinator, Rachel Weaner, will be focusing on our marketing outreach efforts, as well as internal technical editing support for proposals.

"We're excited to announce that we've expanded both our Cultural Resources and Marketing departments with the addition of Gabrielle and Rachel to the Lotus team!"  Katherine Farrow, President of Lotus, said.

Gabrielle is a graduate of the University of Delaware, with an M.A. in Historic Preservation, and a B.A. in History.  Prior to joining Lotus, Ms. Vicari worked as a Community & Preservation Planner in Wilmington, Delaware.  Gabrielle was responsible for conducting community outreach, as well as networking with other professionals, in order to foster successful land and cultural resource preservation efforts at Delaware Greenways.  She also worked closely with state agencies and various contractors to develop and implement detailed maps and multimodal transportation design options.

Our Marketing Coordinator, Rachel, is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University, with a B.A. in Print Journalism.  Prior to joining Lotus, Ms. Weaner served as a Marketing and Event Coordinator for an at-home care organization in Northeast Philadelphia. Rachel was responsible for planning and attending events, writing and publishing monthly newsletters and brochures, and updating and maintaining the firm’s social media channels.

In addition, Rachel also worked as a Newsroom Editor for two years for Business Wire, an online news wire service.  Rachel’s editorial history includes editing a wide variety of press releases for a diverse range of clients, as well as professionally editing two novels, one of which was published in October 2017. 

With both of their backgrounds, we’re sure they’ll be a great fit and will be able to grow here at Lotus!
