Lyndsey Funkhouser Bloxom received her Bachelor of Science from the College of William and Mary in 2012, where she double majored in Geology and Environmental Science. While at William and Mary, she received the Joy Archer Award for Excellence in Environmental Research for her work evaluating the effectiveness of riparian buffers on agricultural field run-off. She went on to attain her Masters of Science in Geology with a focus in hydrogeology at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. While in the program, she completed her graduate thesis titled “Determination of the location of the groundwater divide and nature of groundwater flow paths within a region of active stream capture; The New River Watershed, Virginia, USA”. Lyndsey is the recipient of a number of awards and scholarships including the Leo & Melva Harris Scholarship, Virginia Tech Geosciences Department Outstanding Service Award, and the Tillman Award for Teaching Excellence. Here at G3, Lyndsey applies her extensive knowledge of hydrogeologic concepts and passion for the environment with the G3Method to tackle some of the toughest environmental projects. She is particularly adept at hydrogeologic modeling, water level monitoring, watershed dynamics, and using GIS software to organize and analyze data.
Lyndsey is a recent transplant to Southern California, and says her favorite part of the transition so far is the “ridiculous weather.” In her free time, Lyndsey enjoys sailing, fossil hunting, and volunteering in STEM education.
