what inspired you to pursue structural engineering?

I come by it honestly. My great-grandfather was an architect and my grandfather was a structural engineer in Columbus. He inspired me to pursue structures. I’ve also always enjoyed drawing and being creative, and love math; it just made sense to pursue architecture and engineering.

why did you choose to join schaefer?

After working in the engineering field for over six years, I came to know Schaefer as a well respected structural engineering firm in Ohio. I’m looking forward to the many opportunities I’ll have here to grow as a structural engineer.
