Exposure to a Wide Variety of Projects and Clients

A successful professional is one whose advice is sought out and respected by colleagues, clients, and peers. Haley Ward has provided me opportunities to progress toward this mark through mentoring, exposure to a variety of projects and clients, and professional and technical training opportunities. Recently, I have had the pleasure of working with young professionals as they identify and achieve their own career success.

I have been associated with Haley Ward as a consultant since 1990. Over the years, we had worked together on many projects. I got to the point in my career where I wanted to join a high-quality engineering firm and I turned to Haley Ward. Here at Haley Ward, I have been able to work with some excellent young engineers that can assist me and I in turn can help to train them into becoming well qualified professional engineers. I find it very rewarding working with the team here at Haley Ward on a wide variety of interesting projects.

In addition to being encouraged professionally, our Haley Ward team feels like family and they have allowed me the flexibility with schedule and workload to keep my family at home my number one priority. The compassion to my family life has been invaluable and is something I’m incredibly grateful for!
