Senior Geotechnical Engineer
- Nashville, TN
Alicia is a critical part of our Nashville office. She manages geotechnical projects from start to finish, touching everything from business development and proposals to engineering analysis and final design.
It was a suggestion from a family friend that sent Alicia down the engineering path, and as soon as she started her degree, she knew it was the right fit. After graduation, Alicia started her career at GeoEngineers’ Baton Rouge office, where she learned a lot about geotechnical engineering by working in complex near-shore environments and the Gulf Coast’s unique clays and soils.
“I’m always looking to challenge myself and learn new things,” Alicia says. “I enjoy problem-solving, working collaboratively with others, and providing creative solutions that make our communities a better place.”
In search of new challenges, Alicia moved to Nashville to help introduce GeoEngineers to a new market. Now, she provides expert geotechnical analysis to a variety of clients in Nashville’s energy, transportation and development markets. Alicia is also passionate about promoting engineering and other STEM professions to students. Her volunteer work in this area has been recognized by several awards—and the many students she has helped to inspire.
“I also love being outdoors,” Alicia says, “so I love being able to get out into the field for a project whenever I can—whether it’s logging soil borings, performing CPTs, or conducting a site visit or construction observation.”
In the free time she has left, Alicia enjoys hiking, camping, playing disc golf, and spending time with her husband—and the three cats who run their household.
