ARA is delighted to announce that Scarlett Janusas is joining us as an associate, effective immediately. Scarlett is a seasoned cultural resource management professional with over 3 decades of experience in archaeology, anthropology, marine heritage, and Indigenous consultation. She holds a BA from Western and an MA from Trent and served two terms as the President of the Association of Professional Archaeologists (APA). Scarlett is one of a very select group of archaeologists in the province who is qualified to do marine work. Prior to her work in consulting, she was the Regional Archaeologist for the Region of Waterloo (1986-1993) and the Chairperson of the Ontario Marine Heritage Committee (1991-2001).
In related news, Scarlett’s former Owen Sound Office has been assumed by ARA and, effective immediately, will begin serving clients in Grey, Bruce, Huron, northern Dufferin and western Simcoe counties. The office will be managed by our own Lena Zepf, a Project Archaeologist with 10 years of experience who has been a key part of the ARA team since 2017. Stay tuned for more details!
