meet our 2016 intern Richelle

meet our 2016 intern Richelle

Richelle built a busy summer for herself as a structural intern in our Minneapolis office. With growing interest in renewable energy, she jumped at the chance to assist with hydroelectric, wind turbine, and dam projects.

However, Richelle’s biggest thrill was working on an amusement park ride for Valleyfair. Her contributions included steel and concrete design, structural and stability analysis, and modeling.

“I enjoyed working on meaningful, real-world projects,” she said. “I’ve learned to problem solve and analyze systems in a different way.”

Richelle returns to the University of Michigan this fall to finish up her master’s degree in civil engineering.
