Here at #ultrasystems we love to partner with our local community. Recently, #ultrasystems Cultural Resource Manager, Stephen O’Neil, M.A. Anthropology, was invited to speak at the grand re-opening of the Diego Sepulveda Adobe in Costa Mesa. The Costa Mesa Historical Society asked Mr. O’Neil to share his expertise on the early history of the adobe structure and the land that it sits on, as well as, the native people that once resided there. Mr. O’Neil’s remarks included a brief history of the land that was originally known as the Gengaa village inhabited by the Tongva tribe and continued through the establishment of the estancia (cattle ranch) by the Mission San Juan Capistrano. He explained how Native vaqueros (cowboys) were recruited by the mission and the impact that the mission economy had on the traditional way of life for the Tongva tribe.

As a new graduate, she reached out to Betsy Lindsay, UltraSystems CEO, and inquired about a position in 2009. Betsy was glad to have her join when she could move to the West Coast, so 12 years later, she has arrived in California and started with our firm this week.
