Why I Work at Wilson Ihrig

“I am part of an engineering family. My father was an engineer, I am married to an engineer and am raising an aspiring engineer (although I don’t think you can aspire to being an engineer, I think you are born an engineer!) It seems like a natural choice to come work with engineers at Wilson Ihrig. I am keen on being surrounded by and engaging with smart, talented people who enjoy, and excel at, what they do”
