DAHP Welcomes Holly Borth and Whitney Emge

DAHP is pleased to announce two new staff members that will be starting Monday August 27, 2018. Please join us in welcoming Holly and Whitney to our team!


Holly Borth is joining DAHP's Built Environment Unit. She received her B.A. in Public History from Western Michigan University in 2010, and her M.S. in Historic Preservation from the University of Oregon in 2012. Holly has worked in many different facets of historic preservation throughout Oregon and Wasington, from CLG and SHPO grant funded surveys, to most recently being employed by Archaeological Investigations Northwest for over three years to perform Section 106 and 4f compliance. Holly is incredibly excited to start working on the review side of these kinds of projects. In her spare time, Holly enjoys taking her two corgis to the dog park, baking, and knitting. 

Whitney Emge is joining DAHP's administrative staff. She received her M.S. in Primate Behavior from Central Washington University and recently completed a certificate in Geographic Information Systems at the University of Washington, Tacoma. Whitney is interested in the history of our relationships with other animals and natural spaces, and as a lifelong Washingtonian she loves to get out and enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer, from visiting small mountain towns to beach combing for frosted sea glass. She has been a volunteer caregiver at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest in Cle Elum hopes to start putting her SCUBA certificate to use soon exploring the underwater world of our shorelines. In her spare time, you might find her polishing her cartography skills, hanging out with her wife and family, or making up songs to sing to her cats.


We look forward to working with two more pet lovers! If you happen to be nearby, please stop in and say hello.
