Andrea, a senior structural engineer, has 16 years of experience in bridge design (including inspections and rehabilitations), condition surveys, evaluations, and load ratings. In order to perform this work efficiently for clients that include the NJ Turnpike Authority and the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Andrea focuses her attention on the technical aspects of her work. To Andrea, diving into the numbers, making sure that everything adds up correctly, and seeing designs get detailed on paper is both gratifying and rewarding.
This systematic and meticulous manner will serve her well as she designs the Ramp B Bridge on the New England Thruway for the New York State Thruway Authority, with curved steel plate girders combined with integral steel pier caps supported by single concrete columns on micropiles (say that three times fast!)
When she isn’t designing bridges, Andrea enjoys gardening in the summertime and quilting in the winter.
