Heather Baxter

Heather holds B.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florida and a M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Central Florida.  After graduating with her B.S. from the University of Florida, Heather worked as a Water Facilities Engineer for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. During her four year employment as a regulator, she gained comprehensive knowledge of regulations, consent orders, and permitting. Heather joined Jim and Bill at North Beach Engineering in 2000, where she worked as a Project Manager and quickly adapted to the consulting arena. In 2005, North Beach Engineering was purchased by DRMP, where Heather worked as a Senior Project Manager in the Utility Division. After three years, Heather left DRMP and later co-founded WET Engineering where she is currently a principal. When she isn’t at work, Heather enjoys traveling, reading, cooking and watching the Gators play.

Jim LePetrie

Jim holds B.S. and M.E. degrees in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florida (go Gators!) with a specialization in wastewater engineering. He joined Bill’s first engineering firm, North Beach Engineering, in 1997 fresh out of graduate school. In 2005, North Beach merged with DRMP where Jim worked as a senior project manager. He left DRMP in 2008 to co-found WET Engineering. When not engineering things, Jim can be found at the beach, biking, or cooking, and for some inexplicable reason he is thinking of taking up golf again.

Bill Smoot

Bill is a 1983 BSME graduate of Rice University in Houston, Texas. His first employer was the international construction and engineering giant, Brown & Root. As the oil industry lagged in the late ‘80s, he moved to Jacksonville and went to work for Flood Engineering, Architects & Planners in the water and wastewater group and then later joined Bessent, Hammack & Ruckman as leader of their water and wastewater group. In 1995 he headed out on his own and started North Beach Engineering, a general site civil and utility engineering firm in Jacksonville.  He led North Beach to a staff of over 40 and eventual merger into DRMP, Inc. out of Orlando. In 2008, he again started a new firm, WET Engineering Inc., and later that year was joined by Jim Le Petrie and Heather Baxter. Bill always has at least one personal project going on; currently he is restoring a 1954 Willys pickup.
