Katrina is from Pierce, NE, and is studying civil engineering. Her non-profit experience includes partnering with Prairie STEM. As a community action project, her team worked with Sisters in STEM to inspire middle school-aged girls to pursue a career in the STEM field. Each interaction focused on different aspects of whole-body wellness, such as mental health and stress relief, and also featured a speech from an inspiring female leader in their field. Her leadership experience includes serving as the treasurer for UNO's student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers. As an officer, she manages finances, record keeping, receipts, and refunds for the organization. Her internship experience includes working as a field engineering intern at Kiewit. Due to COVID-19, she learned through live virtual content, how to manage assets, build work, get work, and design engineering. She was also a team leader on an intern project that worked to question the status quo and produce solutions to improve diversity and inclusion in construction and engineering. This summer, she will be working for Whiting-Turner in Colorado Springs, CO as a project engineer intern. In this role, she will assist with the early construction phase of an office building. Her career interests include civil engineering, with an emphasis on structural design and maintenance.
