KATIE LEE, PE
REGISTERED CIVIL ENGINEER
Katie was hired as a summer intern in May of 2011. As a senior from California State University Fresno, Katie had worked for three summers as an engineering intern for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Her internship at Whitson Engineers was her first look into life at a private civil engineering firm. “After working in the public sector for three years it was great to get a look at how a private firm operates. I really enjoyed the close knit atmosphere of the office. Everyone worked really well together.”
During her internship, Katie was able to work on many different projects and strengthen her AutoCAD skills. From lot line adjustments, to road and sewer improvement projects, to construction staking in the field with the survey crew, she enjoyed the great variety in the work done at Whitson Engineers. “It was such a unique experience to see a project from beginning to end. I believe that everything from working in the field to learning more about AutoCAD will give me great confidence as I enter into my last semester in school and eventually go on to enter the work force. I will treasure my summer at Whitson for years to come because of how much I learned and how genuinely nice and hardworking everyone at Whitson is.”
Katie graduated from Fresno State in December of 2011. In April of 2012, she returned to the firm as a full time Assistant Engineer.
