Jess Obert – Inside Sales
Jessalyn joined the F.R. Mahony Inside Sales team in July 2010. We call her Jess around here, not to be confused with the other woman named “Jeff”. She brings with her a Child Care education and also a Veterinary background. Those skills do, surprisingly, come in handy time to time here at F.R. Mahony. Halloween is her favorite holiday, so if you come into our office and find one person in costume, you’ve found Jess.
When she’s not working, she spends her time lifting things up and putting them down, paying organizations and charities to run 3 miles, taking care of her hairless cat ‘Peetri’, and she also likes to believe she’s still crafty and attempts many DIY projects at home.
Jess is always on the go and continuously waiting for the next adventure.

He is a member of NEWEA, MAWEA, MEWEA and serves on the young professional committees for both NEWEA & MEWEA. Daryl is the current YP Chair for NEWEA.

Andrew McBrearty – Engineering Project Manager
I received BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Alabama and attended graduate school at Vanderbilt University. I am a registered Professional Engineer in Massachusetts and Alabama.
Early in my career, I made a transition from structural design to structural analysis and then to software development. After working in software development for more than 20 years, I decided I’d prefer a legacy better than “he wrote eight good lines of code” and pursued an Environmental Engineering path. I worked for a private consulting firm designing wastewater systems for three years before becoming a member of the FRMA team in 2006.
