BILOXI, Miss. (Feb. 21, 2020) – Neel-Schaffer, Inc., is pleased to announce that Haley Streuding, M.A., RPA, has joined the firm and will provide archaeology services working out of Neel-Schaffer’s Biloxi office.
Streuding has 13 years of experience in the archaeological field. She is the first Registered Professional Archaeologist to join the 500-person firm and will be available to provide services to clients across Neel-Schaffer’s nine-state Southeastern United States footprint.
Streuding is SCUBA-certified and has provided a wide variety of archaeological services around the world. She worked for the National Park Service during the BP oil spill cleanup in the Gulf of Mexico, has worked for two cultural resource management firms, and in 2010 she spent several months on a re-survey mission of a Bronze Age shipwreck at Cape Gelidonya off the coast of Turkey. She logged more than 80 dives at depths of 100 feet or more during that project, where they took underwater photos and mapped and excavated more artifacts.
“We are extremely excited that Haley has joined the Neel-Schaffer family and that we now have a Registered Professional Archaeologist to provide services for our many clients along the Gulf Coast and across our company,” said Steve Twedt, PE, a Senior Vice President with Neel-Schaffer who manages the firm’s South Mississippi operations. “Haley’s diverse experience in archaeology will be a great asset to Neel-Schaffer and our clients.”
