A young professional on the firm’s municipal team, Stidam brings a fresh perspective to solving the large-scale problems of the nation’s degrading infrastructure. One of the things she is most passionate about is managing assets that already exist through problem-solving — which she did recently in her work on a Michigan township project involving a full condition assessment and consulting on sewer rehabilitation. Stidam also channels her love of the outdoors into her work on projects that make nature accessible in a built environment, like a complex sidewalk design for a community seeking greater connectivity.
“It’s an honor to receive the prestigious Jim Kleinfelder ACEC National Scholarship,” Stidam said. “I look forward to completion of my master’s degree and am grateful for the support from ACEC at both the state and national levels that I’ve received along the way. I am enthusiastic about continuing my professional career under the community advancement firm with leading industry professionals.”
Stidam has been an avid community service volunteer since high school and continues to be involved with food drives, mentorship, fundraisers, internship programs, and more. “If there are opportunities to serve our community, why shouldn’t we?” Stidam said.
