We continue the celebration of Engineers Week by introducing you to several engineers at Parametrix. They'll be sharing what inspired them to pursue a career in engineering, what they enjoy most about their career, and their advice for up and coming engineers.
Today, which also happens to be Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, we're excited to introduce you to Elizabeth Healy. Elizabeth is a transportation engineer based out of our Salt Lake City office. She has 5 years of industry experience.
What inspired you to pursue a career in engineering?
I wanted a career that was both rewarding and challenging. That, plus my LOVE of math made engineering seem like the perfect field to specialize in!
For Engineers Week 2020, we're introducing you to a few engineers at Parametrix. They'll be sharing what inspired them to pursue a career in engineering, what they enjoy most about their career, and their advice for those pursuing a career in engineering.
Today, meet Seth Sokol. Seth is an engineer in our Portland Water group. He has 14 years of industry experience.
What do you enjoy most about your career in engineering?
For me, engineering is all about problem solving. This could be a simple calculation to determine the correct slope on a pipe or perhaps a consensus-building consultation with a municipal client to help them achieve their clean water goals. Either way, these and endless other problems are all waiting for the engineer’s judgement and hard work to solve.
What advice would you give to someone pursuing a career in engineering?
