We are thrilled to welcome Katie Bolger, our new Design Engineer, to Epstein’s Civil Group!
Katie comes to us from Manhard Consulting, Ltd., a civil engineering consulting firm, where she was a Staff Engineer. Among her duties, she was responsible for the project management of single family, multi-family residential and mixed-use development projects, as well as speculative industrial and commercial developments.
She graduated three years ago from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (go Badgers!), where she received her bachelors in Geological Engineering and Geoscience and Geophysics. While she was at Madison, Katie was part of the ski and snowboard club, studied abroad for a year in France, and was a devout Badger football fan.
Katie says her journey into this industry began, mainly, because of the math, science and problem solving each day brings. “But also because you create something meaningful and see it through until it’s complete and built,” she added.
Katie grew up in a small town just north of Madison called Waunakee. She attended Waunakee High School and participated in a number of activities and socialites such as the French club, ski, volleyball and lacrosse teams, and cheerleading.
Outside of work, Katie loves to travel; she’s always planning her next adventure. Additionally, she enjoys hiking, cooking, camping, reading and writing, and watching football. Any other teams besides those Badgers, though, Katie?!
She is always looking for travel, restaurant and brewery recommendations. Be sure to shoot her a note should you have any!
Once again, welcome, Katie!
