Featured Employee: Paul Gervacio
It was my grandfather, a bridge engineer during WWII, who inspired me to pursue a career in civil engineering.
Fast-forward to today and I’ve been with Psomas for 12 years, specializing in transportation engineering. I was with a very large firm before and I appreciate that here at Psomas I have a lot of flexibility on how to run a project and I get to work directly with clients—this is just not the case with larger firms.
It all comes back to the culture here, which is to foster growth by giving everyone a chance. When I’m meeting with clients I bring the younger engineers along so they can interact with the client and see first hand the discussions that go on behind the scenes.
From working on adding ramps to US-101 outside NBC/Universal’s front door to dedicated bike lanes for the City of Sacramento, I enjoy working on a diverse array of projects. I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I drive through a city with my wife and daughter and can say “hey, I worked on this!”
