Vincent Hellens

Transportation
Los Angeles, CA

I was inspired to pursue a career in civil engineering after driving over the Vincent St. Thomas Bridge at the LA Harbor. I wanted to pursue a career that would give me the opportunity to build infrastructure like that, projects that would have a lasting impact on the community and people’s lives. So I went to Alabama A & M University and got my Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering.

I’ve been with Psomas over six years now. I work throughout Los Angeles and Orange County on transportation projects like complete streets, active transportation programs, roadway design, and bridge widenings.

I think my favorite projects are complete streets, which encourage use by pedestrians, bike riders and drivers alike so everyone can get around their community. I love projects that serve the public, making sure its safe for someone to cross the street or drive their car.

The culture here at Psomas really encourages a family environment. We have a great team here in LA—my co-workers are my friends, my “work family.” We do a lot of outside activities together like running marathons or going bowling.

When I’m not at work you’ll find me running marathons. My wife and I also love to travel. We just went to Amsterdam, Paris and London. Next up, Cairo!

Sherri Berexa

Construction Manager
Roseville, CA

What I like about construction management is that it’s a fast-paced field—every day is different, and I see lots of progress on a daily basis. Not to mention the opportunity to be outdoors!

I was inspired to get into this field after meeting the head of Psomas’ Northern California Construction Management team. He convinced me to give construction management at Psomas a try and the rest is history!

I love making all the parts work together—finding the right solution to a problem that leads to that “aha” moment. Currently I’m the construction manager for the City of Sacramento’s Accelerated Water Meter project. I’ve also worked on a number of transportation projects like interchanges and roundabouts. At a medium–sized company like Psomas you get lots of individual attention but it’s big enough to offer plenty of project opportunities and resources.

In my free time, you’ll often see me paddle boarding on Lake Natoma, sometimes even with a picnic dinner, and hiking in the local mountains. I’m also a home improvement addict and love to tackle projects around the house. I’ve entirely redone the landscaping in my front and backyards and painted all the cabinets in my house myself!
