In episode 105 of The Civil Engineering Podcast, I speak with Lindsay O’Leary, PE, LEED AP about her career path from a civil engineer to now working full-time as the Executive Director for the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Texas Section where she is helping civil engineers to achieve success on a daily basis.
Here are some of the questions I ask Lindsay about how she went from being a civil engineer to helping civil engineers on a daily basis:
- How did you go from being a civil engineer to Executive Director for the ASCE Texas Section?
- Do you think you would be able to do this job successfully if you weren’t a civil engineer?
- What are some of the challenges the organization is facing that you have to deal with?
- What were you dealing during the Hurricane Harvey disaster?
