Broadbent and Associates, Inc. is pleased to welcome Kari Sprengeler to its growing cultural resources team. Kari will serve as Project Archaeologist, and will help develop and grow Broadbent’s cultural resources program. Her primary focus will be serving Broadbent’s clients in California.
Kari brings more than 15 years of experience as a professional archaeologist to the team. Starting her career at the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, she moved to Santa Cruz, California in 2002 to work for a small local firm, Albion Environmental. While there, she worked on numerous projects under the auspices of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), and local city/county environmental regulations. She also spent more than three years as a contract archaeologist at Fort Hunter Liggett in Monterey County.
In 2007, Kari moved to Reno, Nevada to work for ASM Affiliates, a firm specializing in cultural resources management. She continued to work on projects in California while also gaining expertise throughout the Great Basin and other areas of the Intermountain West. While there, she built on the skills she had previously acquired, served as Project Manager and Principal Investigator, and eventually became the Reno Office Director.
Kari is excited to join the staff at Broadbent and looks forward to a bright future here. When she’s not at work she likes to travel, hike and camp with her family, and play music.
