We are chefs, gardeners, dog lovers, mothers and fathers. Music aficionados, exercise lovers, trailblazers. We are artists – collaborators and communicators. Innovators and strategists. We solve problems and bring big ideas to life.
As president and founder of the firm, I provide oversight for all strategic services and advise on how best to utilize our resources to achieve our clients’ goals. I have 40 years of experience in communications and marketing, ranging from large international efforts to projects that connect just a few key stakeholders and individually resolve sensitive issues. My family and nine-year-old granddaughter keep life lively and joyful.
“Make it work.”

After more than 20 years in the newspaper business, I found a new direction in public service. Working in a Tucson City Council office taught me how gratifying it is to dedicate time and energy to helping improve my community. Seven years as a senior community relations officer with the Arizona Department of Transportation introduced me to both transportation and the public involvement process - and solidified for me the importance of developing and maintaining relationships to accomplish good things. I am thrilled my path has led me to Gordley Group. I look forward to continuing my efforts to build better communities along with our great team and our partners throughout the region.

After 16-plus years in the transportation industry, I am excited to be part of the Gordley Group. My experience in managing multiple projects and working with stakeholders through all phases of highway construction has led me to this new path in my career.

Jessica De La OssaPublic Involvement Specialist firstname.lastname@example.org
With over five years of event planning experience, I ensure that public meetings are planned and executed efficiently. I support the public involvement team with all aspects of the process, from beginning to end. I have worked in the non-profit sector for the majority of my professional career which has given me a true sense of what it means to help other people. After growing up in South Texas, I spent the next eight years living in Oklahoma City. My husband and I recently moved to Tucson to take advantage of the outdoor activities and beautiful scenery Arizona has to offer. On the weekend, you will find me spending time with my family and crazy dog. I love shopping, hiking, going to the zoo and trying out new restaurants.

I ensure that all elements of the public outreach process are well planned and executed. I love the diversity of work, from sitting at my computer tracking and analyzing public comments in our database, to travelling anywhere from Apache Junction to Douglas to stage public meetings. My husband is an artist. Our two boys grew up in Tucson and attended the University of Arizona, so we are all dedicated Wildcat fans.
