OCI team as a full-time Project Engineer and has worked on a variety of
stormwater and transportation drainage projects for the Port of Seattle, King
County, City of Bellevue, and others.
“OCI has become my support system
whenever it comes to helping me achieve my goals. Whether it is a scholarship,
graduate school, developing my skills in a certain discipline, or celebrating
my achievements – I have been able to rely on OCI for almost two years to get a
jumpstart in my professional career”, Sara said as she reflected on her time on
the OCI team. “OCI has supported me by challenging me with projects
outside of my comfort zone and providing guidance when I need it, not only with
technical skills but also general mentorship”.
“They also support me just by being a
workplace that is full of inspiring, hardworking women in a male-dominated
field. Working with OCI has given me the confidence to go after what I want
without doubting myself.”
Sara will be recognized at the upcoming WTS Puget Sound Annual Scholarships and Awards Gala on March 12, 2020 and we could not be more excited to see where this opportunity takes Sara next in her career!
