Featured Employee: Kelsey Littell
Assistant Resident Engineer
I grew up in Antioch, California with a father who was a civil engineer in construction management. When I was home sick from school he used to take me into the office with him, and when he’d bring home the big presentation posters, my sister and I would make forts out of them. I grew to love the profession.
I earned a degree in civil engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and joined Psomas right after graduation two years ago. I wanted to join the firm for two main reasons: my dad spoke highly of Psomas’ leadership team and I would get the opportunity to work on a huge project, the $40 million Balfour Interchange, something that doesn’t come along too often.
My job is taking designs into the real world and finding solutions on the fly to make everything fit. It’s thinking on your feet and dealing with people and the challenges of problem solving.
It’s great that I’m not in a cubicle all day and I get the opportunity to be outside. In fact, in my spare time I’m outside taking my two scruffy mutts, Atticus and Scarlett, on adventures. I love to find new hiking trails for them; they’re tiny, but mighty!
