Jasmine Abraham
Business Development
Being a woman in engineering has been an amazing journey. I’ve been blessed with incredible opportunities and experiences that no other career path would have given me. My favorite thing about being a female engineer is challenging people’s first impressions on who’s there to do the job, the look of surprise never gets old.

Mary Alexander
Senior Electrical Engineer
I knew I wanted a career that involved buildings since I was young. I have always loved different types and even used to look up as I walked into a new place to see what the lighting was like. My father used to get frustrated because I would stop in my tracks just to stand there and look. When I found out that I could make a career out of making sure the environment functioned great for those that were a part of it I was sold. Now I get to spend every day working towards creating an environment to give people the best experience possible.

To me, women in engineering means being fearless in the pursuit of your passions. I was the little girl who always had more Lego sets than Barbie dolls and who had a passion for math and science. I’m proud that I stuck with it and followed my dreams. As a woman engineer, I hope to help motivate girls today to be the next generation of incredible engineers.

The average person spends 90% of their life indoors and especially in light of the recent pandemic, design and operation of the built environment is critical to the health, wellness, and livelihood of our communities. Through our work as engineers, we can make this much needed positive impact for the present and future generations. This is why I became an engineer.
