Senior Geotechnical Engineer
- Boston, MA
Heidi is a project manager for the Performance-Based Engineering and Risk Analysis Group (PBE-RA) at GeoEngineers. “Our group works on a lot of projects that require advanced analyses to solve complicated soft ground and seismic issues,” Heidi says. “We are starting to do things that have never been done before, and have the technical capabilities to justify our solutions.”
Heidi says her favorite part about working at GeoEngineers is a common goal of technical excellence among staff and the thrill of working on large, complicated projects that require significant coordination.
“I have the ability to work on a wide variety of different projects in the office and out in the field that require different solutions, so the work is far from monotonous,” Heidi says. “Everyone at GeoEngineers is very passionate about what they do, and about making a difference in their communities. This attitude makes us excel in our work.”
A native of the Dominican Republic, Heidi loves dancing. When she’s not at work, you can often find her taking a Zumba class to stay in shape. She also enjoys hanging out with her family and friends whether its rock climbing, hiking or exploring around her new stomping grounds in New England.
