I was a math geek before being a “geek” was cool. And I was okay with that. In fact, it led me to where I am today.
My love for math combined with my appreciation for well-designed infrastructure led me to a career in civil engineering. In my first co-op right out of high school, I put those two passions to good use, and I haven’t stopped at all (well, maybe to study a bit in college).
From my first engineering classes at the University of Evansville to my everyday work, I’ve found each engineering challenge to be unique, as is each solution. Constantly varying projects keep me engaged and stimulated. There is no boredom in an engineer’s job!
Today, I help local governments find workable solutions to their infrastructure challenges. My first job was with a local government, so I understand the intricate processes we must follow to prioritize potential programs.
Having helped clients find solutions to routine—and complex—infrastructure problems, I’m lucky to have forged lasting relationships with leaders and stakeholders across many communities.
Today, I serve as coordinator of the Southern Indiana Stormwater Advisory Committee (SWAC), which assists eight communities, serving a population totaling nearly 200,000 people. It is my role to help guide stormwater quality programs by educating people, encouraging involvement, and implementing new planning approaches to improve the quality of life for our people.
Now at Qk4 and with 15 years of experience as a PE, I strive to make a difference in the communities we serve. When we serve our clients well, through them we serve society well.
