“You get out what you put in”

My career at The Engineering Enterprise began when I joined the firm as an intern when I was in high school. After I graduated from college, I accepted a position at another firm in San Diego. When there was an opportunity to return to TEE where my career started, I couldn’t say no.

There is a lot of opportunity at TEE, and I am grateful to be a part of the team. My time here has allowed me to grow as not only a problem solver, but as a leader. I have become more efficient in breaking down problems, rapidly implementing a game plan and coordinating with others on projects.

My sister and I were fortunate to have parents that worked together to provide an enriching childhood. They took us on some great family vacations that had lasting impacts on me. When I was 10 years old, my dad and I went on a rafting and exploration trip in Utah. Half the trip was dedicated to paleontology and searching for fossils of prehistoric ocean creatures

I grew up in Nevada City, California and attended college in San Diego. I enjoyed being raised in a rural area. I now call San Diego home, but I’ll always consider Nevada City my hometown.

My favorite part of working at TEE is the company’s commitment to improvement. They take everyone’s opinion into account by actively asking for feedback and applying employee ideas through a collaborative process. This has created a respectful, meaningful working environment that brings out the best in everyone.

As a child I wanted to be an Engineer of some sort. I am proud that I was able to make my childhood dreams a reality. I love my career as Engineering gives you options. We can keep an open mind while approaching a problem and we learn more each time a new problem arises. A constant pursuit of knowledge and understanding is something I value and pursue every day.
