Press Releases

Michelle L. Davenport joined RGA as an archaeologist in November 2018. Ms. Davenport has worked in cultural resource management since 2011. She received her M.A. in Applied Anthropology from Mississippi State University in 2017, focusing in bioarchaeology. Her research interests include assessing changes in health, particularly nutritional health, across periods of transition in both prehistoric and historic contexts. Prior to joining RGA, Ms. Davenport has conducted Phase I, II, and III fieldwork in New York, Vermont, Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and Idaho, as well as research in Mississippi. She is on the list of Qualified Archaeologists to Excavate at Burial Sites and the list of Qualified Skeletal Analysts for the state of Wisconsin, and has monitored several projects occurring in proximity to burial sites. She is excited to be a part of the RGA team.

Rebecca Kellawan joined RGA as a Senior Archaeologist in March 2019. Ms. Kellawan is a recent transplant to New Jersey and began working in cultural resource management in California and Nevada in 2010. In 2005, she received her B.A. in Anthropology with a minor in Ethnic Studies from Humboldt State University where most of her studies centered on California prehistory. She received her M.A. in Historical Archaeology of the Modern World from the University of Bristol in 2007 where her work focused on investigating the remains of a World War II-era installation, located on the grounds of a Victorian-era estate in North Somerset, UK. The site was rumored to have been a segregated hospital for African American soldiers and her thesis work combined archaeology, historical research, and oral history to reconstruct the site’s uses and chronology. Prior to moving to New Jersey, Ms. Kellawan’s CRM work largely focused on compliance projects for the energy sector and the military. Her work included managing and directing several inventories and evaluation projects in various regions of California, including the Mojave Desert, the Great Basin, the Sierra Nevada foothills, and the coastal redwoods. Ms. Kellawan was recently accepted to the Ph.D. program in History and Theory of Architecture at Princeton University’s School of Architecture and is excited about the opportunity for her work with RGA to inform and compliment her graduate studies.
