Meet some of our Featured Employees
I’ve been with Psomas for four years now, after getting my Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies at USC.
What I love about working at Psomas is that this company really looks at your potential, your skillset, and your passions to support you in becoming a valuable addition to the team. Also, I work with a lot of strong, smart women, who are inspirational role models for my career.
My specialty is modeling air quality and greenhouse gas emissions to see how a project would impact the environment. While I work on a variety of projects, my favorite ones are mixed-use transit-oriented developments—they are the future of development and sustainability. It’s exciting to be practicing my profession in California because of all the cutting-edge environmental technologies and regulations.
I’m also a musician and this helps me to be better at my job. It has taught me determination, focus, and the ability to perform in front of other people under pressure. When I’m not at work as an environmental planner, I’m performing as a harpist on TV, recordings, film, and in music videos. This certainly keeps my life exciting! I get to do all of the things that I’m really passionate about.
I decided to go into civil engineering because, at the end of the day, I wanted the satisfaction of designing projects that were tangible and a benefit to the community that I live in.
My favorite projects to work on are the stormwater projects I’ve been working on recently. I’m helping agencies comply with stormwater regulations by designing regional infiltration projects. It’s a big benefit for the environment and for the community. I’ve also worked on a variety of private development projects.
I’ve been with Psomas for 11 years. One of the best things about working here is that from senior leadership on down we are all communicating and collaborating. We share work and clients and focus on doing what’s best for the company and not just ourselves.
When I’m not at work you can find me coaching my two boys, who are five and seven, on their baseball, soccer and basketball teams. My wife and I and our boys love spending most holiday weekends camping throughout Southern California.
