Isabel Al-Abed

Project Engineer, Portland

Isabel says her favorite part of being a project engineer is being able to make friends and learn everyday; she gets to build relationships with and learn from the experts she works alongside, from owners and architects to consultants and subcontractors. She enjoys working through problems and always remembers to “stay humble, work hard, and be kind,” she says. Isabel was once a baker by trade and still enjoys baking in her free time, as well as running, hiking, finding mountain lakes to swim and float in, and traveling abroad as much as possible.
