“I am passionate about the work I do because I know that as a group – engineers, surveyors, planners, landscape architects, and the people we work with, we are improving the quality of life and extending the lives of everyone that our work touches. We don’t save lives in the sense that a surgeon repairs a failing heart and gives someone a few more years to live, our contribution is far more widespread than that. We provide cleaner water and effective sanitation, reducing diseases and adding years to people’s lives. We provide safer ways to get from Point A to Point B, reducing accidents and deaths that would have otherwise occurred. We provide places for people to enjoy, improving their quality of life. It’s difficult to quantify the impact that we have within that frame of reference, but rest assured that we know the impact exists. We don’t do it for recognition or for awards or to have buildings and bridges named after us. I do it so that when I lay my head down at night, I know in a way that only matters to me, that I have done my part to leave the world a better place than it was before I arrived – and that is something worth being passionate about.”
