why do you enjoy living in Cincinnati, Ohio?

I’m originally from a suburb of Chicago, and always enjoyed visiting the bustling downtown. With that experience, I really feel that Cincinnati has the amenities of a big city with the charm of small town. I take advantage of both, currently living in a small, tight-knit neighborhood, but I’m only a 15 minute drive from downtown where there is always something to do.

why are you proud to work for Schaefer?

I really enjoy the people that I work with and I love the challenging, and sometimes high profile, projects that I’ve been fortunate to design. I’m continually given opportunities to better my skills as an engineer.
