Favorite quote: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it” – Maya Angelou

Fun fact: I love to dance!

How do you unwind after a long day of work? After a long day of work, I like to spend quality time with my family and enjoy a glass of wine.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? There have been many challenges, but with passion and determination, I jumped the obstacles at the critical parts of the race.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? The year 2020 has been a monumental moment both personally and professionally. Witnessing the resiliency of our team has been truly inspiring. Seeing us coming together as a strong community of individuals and going above and beyond for each other has filled my heart with pride.

Who are your role models? My grandmothers and my mother. My parental grandmother survived the Holocaust to become an architect. She is a woman of character and elegance. My maternal grandmother is a chemical engineer with an MBA and a mother of four daughters, all of which followed her steps on STEM careers. And above all, my mother. She’s a math teacher who created a long-distance program to teach math via the radio to millions of underprivileged kids in Venezuela. Her passion, determination and leadership are some of the qualities I admire the most.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? Do what makes you happy, you will be better at it and the rest will follow.

What advice would you give a young woman at the start of her career? Seek to understand the business you are part of and the value you can provide. See growth as an ability to increase the value you bring.

How does being a woman has impacted your career? As a female engineer, I believe I present myself less threatening to project stakeholders. It has also allowed me to build strong relationships with peers, contractors, and owners. Now as a leader, it has helped me create a healthy office culture. I hope to be an example where family and a career can co-exist. In return, that balance makes us all better.
