A Spotlight On Project Management

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020

Amanda Martin has been a member of the Johnson Engineering team since 2002 and is a Planner II responsible for zoning analysis, preliminary site assessments and the planning and distribution of permitting packages for County, City, State and Federal Agencies. She maintains daily communication with government agencies and has conducted numerous research studies, including an evaluation of potential land usage.

In January 2020 Amanda began a new endeavor to earn Project Management Certification. Over the course of 25 weeks she studied project budget, schedule, implementation, progress tracking, business communication, and related topics. This hard work resulted in earning a Certificate in Project Management from the University of Phoenix in July 2020.

Amanda has applied her project management skills by serving as a board member of the Calusa Chapter Florida Planning and Zoning Association. In collaboration with the members of the FPZA Board, she was involved in organizing and hosting training activities for Certified Planners and Certified Environmental Health Professionals. After obtaining her Project Management Certification, Amanda has begun to assist further in the understanding of project scope and priorities, acted as a point of contact for projects, set goals, encouraged team members to complete tasks on schedule, and conducted quality control to maintain standard expectations.

In an effort to better serve our clients and continue delivering quality project management, Amanda plans to refine her project management skill sets through becoming more involved with internal project management training specific to the consulting and engineering fields.
