*Tell me about yourself, your schooling, career path.* I’m from Albuquerque, New Mexico and I studied at the University of New Mexico and received a bachelor’s in civil engineering. While in my sophomore year of college, I started an internship with a consulting firm and continued my internship until I graduated. After graduating, I received a full-time position there as a civil engineer. I moved to Chicago four years ago and accepted my position with Donohue as a civil engineer working on site design and improvements for wastewater treatment facilities, drinking water, sewer and storm water projects.

*Tell me about yourself, your schooling, career path.* I went to college at Michigan Tech and received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s degree in structural engineering. Starting out, I was a construction engineer in the heavy oil and gas industries for another company in Green Bay, Wis. I had an opportunity to move to the structural engineering group in Sheboygan and have been at Donohue since 2014. In 2016, I was looking to move back to Michigan to be closer to family and helped Donohue open a new office in Grand Rapids, where I have been located ever since. Since moving here, I am focused on project management and business development along with structural engineering.

*Tell me about yourself, your schooling, career path.* I graduated from UW-Platteville with a bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering and civil engineering with an environmental emphasis. During college, I worked as a co-op for Donohue and became a full-time employee after graduation; I’ve been here 18 years. When I started, I generally was helping other process-mechanical engineers with their designs on projects. As got more experience, I became more independent and started working on my own process-mechanical designs and eventually started doing project management as well. For the most part, I work on municipal wastewater treatment plant projects, but I have also worked on industrial wastewater treatment plants, municipal water treatment plants, and collection system lift stations. Internally at Donohue, I am part of the hydraulics committee (performing quality reviews of hydraulic calculations) and the cost estimating committee, and have become a senior level process-mechanical engineer and project manager.

*Tell me about yourself, your schooling, career path.* I grew up in the Twin Cities (Richfield, Minnesota) and attended Illinois Institute of Technology where I received a degree in electrical engineering, specializing in power distribution. During my last semester of college, I interviewed at Donohue and started working there immediately after graduating. I’ve been here 16 years, working in a variety of different positions. Starting out, my primary responsibility was CAD drafting before quickly transitioning into electrical design assistance. I then became a lead electrical engineer while advancing into project management and eventually regional office management.
