Dr. Dawn Keating
Dr. Dawn Keating is an environmental engineer and joined CDM Smith 11 years ago. Since then she proves every day her expertise in environmental monitoring and assessment, water resource management, environmental reporting and integrated river basin management. During her time as a project manager at CDM Smith, she has already managed numerous projects in Dublin and Qatar.
She is particularly proud of one of her largest projects, the Eastern River Basin District Project (ERBD) in Dublin, where she was involved from the early planning stages right through to implementation across the east of the country and was responsible for the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive in the ERBD project for many years.
What motivates her most about her work as a project manager is that the projects she works on often have a positive impact on the environment and people. As diverse as her projects are, she also enjoys her free time. Preferably she takes pictures, hikes or travels - if possible everything at the same time.
