Roller Coasters, Leather Goods, Breakfast Foods, & Woodworking – Meet our Raleigh Stormwater Team!
By: Trang Vu
By now, I’m sure you know that we offer Stormwater Services from our Raleigh office. If you didn’t know, do you even love us at all? I’ll forgive you this time and I’ll even do you one better and give you an in-depth introduction to our team! Our Stormwater Services group in Raleigh, NC is led by Becky Ward, a seasoned professional with almost four decades of experience. Her team is comprised of four talented designers that bring varied expertise to the group. This week I was able to catch up with the team and ask a few questions to better know the personalities behind the designers.
Becky is a transplant, originally from Michigan, who loves roller coasters but is terrified of heights. Talk about sweet irony, huh? Her passion is to share her knowledge and experience to advise others on stormwater management (the perfect person to lead this team, in my opinion)! Becky’s favorite type of project is one that is challenging and forces her to use her imagination to find the best solution that supports and addresses the site’s current conditions. I asked about her favorite meal and she said she could eat tomato soup and salad any time all the time, and I can personally attest since I’ve witnessed her with soup multiple times a week for lunch!
Shane is a stormwater tech that enjoys woodworking and a big slice of buffalo chicken pizza after work (not at the same time of course, that could be dangerous)! His favorite project to date has been the Thomas Brooks Ball Field where our team resolved the drainage issues and slope failures around the USA Baseball National Training Complex (check out that blog here). His favorite part about working with Timmons Group? The people and the work life balance so he can relax with his family after a day in the office.
