"At times, I had to gain the respect of people who would rather not have a college student or a woman inspecting their work."


"I had a summer job with the Streets and Traffic Division of the Kansas City, Missouri Public Works Division. As the Utility Coordinator and a Street Resurfacing Inspector, I acquired experience in scheduling projects and working with other agencies and contractors. At times, I had to gain the respect of people who would rather not have a college student or a woman inspecting their work. Through the William Jewell College Mentor Program, I was matched with a civil engineer from Woodward-Clyde Consultants. He showed me that civil engineering is a fascinating career field."
