The National Society of Professional Engineers celebrates National Engineers Week from February 19th through the 25th. Resources on what NSPE is hosting for the week can be located here: https://www.nspe.org/resources/partners-and-state-societies/engineers-week. To start off our celebration of our engineers at Lloyd, we wanted to feature several of our staff and their take on being an engineer.
Tish Lance, Senior Designer and Director of IT with Lloyd shares the following...
"I entered the Engineering field back in the early 90s. My career path was not typical in the industry. I started out with a Technical Diploma from Canada, worked as an engineering designer in Canada and the United states for many years. Rather than following the traditional path of drafter to designer to EIT and finally to PE, I held firm to my preferences to remain in the designer/EIT role. I knew I really enjoyed design and plan production, and had little interest in budgets, schedules, contracts, things that a PE spends a lot of their time handling. It may have appeared to an outsider that I wasn't growing and developing, but I found that I was able to really learn and hone my skills as a plan production lead. Eventually this path led me to my current position as Director of IT, which includes additional roles as Cad Manager and Production Lead. The lesson here is, do what makes you happy, not what other people tell you is next."
Several of Tish's favorite engineer projects have included the Diamondbacks Chase Field Baseball Field Turf Conversion, UC Berkeley Cal Memorial Stadium Rebuild, Baltimore Ravens Turf to Grass Conversion, and the Diamondbacks/Rockie's Salt River Fields Spring Training Facility.
