In Civil Engineer, Stories

I am… a women who loves the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. I’m also a Civil Engineer

I chose Civil Engineering because… I enjoy the outdoors and wanted to work with the natural environment. I stayed in civil engineering because I like that you can see the results of your work. You get to make the world a little safer and healthier, while improving people’s lives. For example, after Hurricane Katrina, I helped identify where people could rebuild more safely.

I like my job because… I get to work with a lot of really smart and interesting people.

My typical day at work involves… a lot of emails! I help coordinate business development and technical excellence for water resources nationwide for a large engineering firm. This involves helping to develop strategies and bringing together the best resources for our clients.

I want others to know… you are probably smarter than you think you are and it’s okay to fail. You learn much more from your failures than your successes. The key is not to make the same mistake twice.
