*Tell me about yourself, your schooling, career path.* I grew up in Baraboo, Wis. and received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil and environmental engineering from UW-Madison. While in college, I decided I wanted to focus on wastewater treatment after my bachelor’s; this led me to pursue my master’s degree, including a research assistant position for the Kenosha wastewater treatment facility studying odor control systems. After graduation, I worked at EarthTech for 15 years doing wastewater design and later moved to Donohue. In my time with Donohue so far, I am still very wastewater focused, where I manage studies, planning reports, and design 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.
