Dewberry's Becky Schneider Named Women in Technology's Rising Star


Sharing is Caring

Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, has announced that Becky Schneider has been named this year’s Rising Star by Women in Technology (WIT), a non-profit organization that aims to provide women in technology industries with networking and professional development opportunities across its 1000-member organization.

Schneider is a resource lead in Dewberry’s geospatial and technology services group located in Fairfax, Virginia, and has been in the industry for more than three years. She has worked on a variety of geospatial and mapping projects for state/local and federal clients, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Geological Survey.

“There are so many tremendous women in the technology industry who have accomplished incredible things,” says Schneider. “I am humbled to be named a rising star among them and would certainly not be where I am today without the support and encouragement of many individuals who have gone before me.”

“While Becky may be early in her career, she has already shown tremendous leadership abilities in her role,” says Dewberry Senior Vice President Amar Nayegandhi. “Additionally, she has a strong technical skillset and continues to seek out opportunities to learn new methodologies and technologies to support our clients. Becky has a bright future in geospatial technologies ahead of her and we’re fortunate to have her on our team.”

Schneider earned her bachelor’s degree in geographic science, applied geographic information systems from James Madison University (2017).
