Annie Spangenberger


Growing up in Rhode Island, Annie developed a love for the wetlands, estuaries, and bogs that define the coasts of southern New England. At an early age, she recognized the importance of restoring and enhancing coastal systems that had been degraded by anthropogenic impacts, climate change, and sea level rise. At the University of Vermont, Annie was introduced to the wider field of restoration ecology, including rivers, lakes, and forests. She also found new interests in plant and soil science, and graduated with degrees in both Environmental Science and Forestry.

Annie joined Inter-Fluve’s Cambridge, Massachusetts office in 2023, after working in construction as an ecological project manager for seven years. Her work focused on coordinating and overseeing construction projects like living shorelines, cranberry bog restorations, and salt marsh enhancements. This work introduced her to Inter-Fluve, and she was attracted by the opportunity to learn more about the design process and the planning that precedes construction. Annie’s construction experience has dovetailed neatly into her current work at Inter-Fluve, which is focused on permitting, design, project management, and construction period services for restoration work along the Eastern Seaboard. 

Outside of work, you can find Annie cruising along the South Shore of Massachusetts, skiing, fishing, and hiking with her dog Hadley (named after the harbor near Woods Hole). What motivates her? “Preserving beautiful places—especially in a place like New England where so much has been developed.”
