Claudia Watts

Growing up on a small beef cattle farm (very small—only two Angus steers at any given time) north of Baltimore, Maryland, I gained an appreciation for sustainable farming and the environment at an early age. I went to college in West Virginia, where the environmental studies program included my top interests: the environment and historic preservation. Following graduation, I relocated to San Diego to escape winter and quickly learned that if I wanted to help support a sustainable future as an environmental planner in California, I would need to learn more than just what CEQA stood for. I’ve relished delving into the ever-changing CEQA world and recognize the worth of this process that considers environmental impacts in project decisions, discloses information to the public, and seeks to avoid and mitigate adverse effects.

I am passionate about addressing environmental challenges and delivering high-quality documents tailored to each unique project. With experience in preparing both programmatic and project-specific environmental impact assessments for complex and straightforward projects, I am committed to supporting clients through the CEQA process.

In my free time, I can be found at parks, playgrounds, or campsites with my son, who loves outdoor activities. Remaining committed to my love of historic architecture, I lead walking tours of local historical districts from time to time. I am also an avid traveler who thrives on experiencing new cultures and have a penchant for discovering the culinary delights of every city.
