what inspired you to pursue structural engineering?

I’m most proud of earning a master’s degree in structural engineering. In the final years of my undergraduate studies, structural engineering really caught my attention as I could create structures through design and modeling. I knew I wanted to continue with this discipline and learn more about it in graduate school.

why are you proud to work for Schaefer?

I was impressed with Schaefer’s reputation in the industry and knew I would find inspiration in the complexity and scale of the projects Schaefer designs.
