Exploring Boise: My Experience as a Parametrix Office Exchange Traveler

Jenica Hillyard | 11-13-2018

Parametrix recently launched a new program called POET, which stands for Parametrix Office Exchange Traveler. This program creates the opportunity for employee-owners to travel to one of our 12 offices throughout the West for training, teaching, empowerment, and fun, all while getting to meet fellow employee-owners face to face. Jenica Hillyard, a transportation engineer from our Bremerton, WA office traveled to our Boise, ID office in late October. Read about her experience below.

Only 5 other rafts floated through all weekend.

This trip is a great tradition that we all look forward to... (more)
