Carrie Shepheard has been named Resident Engineer for the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Charlottesville Residency, which is responsible for VDOT operations in Albemarle, Greene and Madison counties.

Shepheard will succeed Joel DeNunzio, who was recently appointed District Maintenance Engineer for VDOT’s Staunton District.

“We are fortunate to have Carrie join our executive leadership team,” said District Engineer John D. Lynch. “She brings significant experience with both VDOT and the private sector to this position. Her previous leadership positions in the Lynchburg District involved similar work so she is familiar with the activities and issues that she’ll manage in Charlottesville and will be as successful here as she has been in her past positions.”

Shepheard previously served as assistant resident engineer, acting resident engineer and land use engineer at the Farmville Residency in Lynchburg District. Her prior experience also includes work on the Downtown/Midtown Tunnel in Hampton Roads, storm water and hydraulics engineering and highway design.

She is a licensed professional engineer, holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in environmental engineering from Old Dominion University and is a graduate of VDOT’s Leadership Excellence and Development program.

As resident engineer Shepheard will be responsible for VDOT’s day-to-day activities in the Charlottesville Residency’s three counties and the work done by the six area headquarters that serve Albemarle, Greene and Madison counties.

The residency and area headquarters staff perform maintenance, land use, contract management and maintenance project development and delivery through the local offices.
