Karen made it all the way through her first year at college before picking a major. But once she selected engineering, she knew she’d found the right path. This puzzle lover has been rocking her chosen field ever since, filling roles as a process engineer, a manager, in business development and now executive leadership. She appreciates how Burns & McDonnell identifies and supports an employee’s strengths — in her case a gift of gab and a passion for projects.
I’m most proud of the relationships I’ve formed here. I’m blessed to be here at this company. We are a true team, from attacking deadlines together to celebrating birthdays with Mexican food.
Karen grew up on a farm, so her first jobs were working with the crops and helping care for a herd of 1,000 cattle. Her favorite veggie? Sweet corn, of course.
