Eric Wood is our featured associate this month. [...]
Growing up in Dora, Alabama, Caitlin was always encouraged by her electrical engineer father in her potential to be a great engineer. While she initially started out as an interior design major, she quickly realized that she found the engineering aspects involved more interesting. After attending a conference with her father one summer, Caitlin was ready to take the plunge and change her major.
She plunged in all the way by participating in the dual degree program with Samford University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). This involved attending Samford for four years to major in Mathematics and attending UAB for two years to study Civil Engineering. Caitlin graduated in May 2013, receiving a bachelor degree from each school.
During the first half of 2013, Caitlin interned at IKO Industries. She worked with the project manager, assisting with various responsibilities during the construction of an industrial complex.
Soon after her internship ended, Caitlin joined Sain Associates, and we all realized she was a great fit. She says that even before meeting anyone at Sain, she could tell that it was a company that values giving back to the community.
Our site engineering team has also been the perfect place for Caitlin to put the concepts she learned in her classes into practice and learn more about the overall aspects of site design. She hopes to continue learning and be able to contribute significantly to her team and Sain as a whole. She also hopes to attain her Professional Engineer Licensure.
Welcome to the team, Caitlin! We’re so happy to have you.
