what has been your most suprising/exciting experience at Schaefer?

Professionally, I was most excited when I designed a cross-laminated timber hotel. I have experienced immediate responsibility at Schaefer, and have grown as a structural engineer with the mentorship of seasoned engineers.

Culturally, I successfully ran the Schaefer 100, a fun wellness event for the whole company. I also look forward to participating in our annual Schaefer Week!

why are you proud to work for Schaefer?

I like working at Schaefer because I feel valued as an employee. The firm and my team are responsive to my needs and work hard to provide a positive work environment and work/life balance. I enjoy collaborating with team members every day; everyone is always quick to help each other and make the team better.
