Project Engineer Ashleigh Eubank has been with our Industrial Group for the past year and a half. She grew up on a cattle ranch in Albert, New Mexico and graduated from New Mexico Tech with a degree in mineral engineering.
What made you want to work with Sundt?
As an engineer at my previous job, I was doing a lot of design work and wasn’t getting as much out of it as I hoped. I was interested in switching things up and wanted something more hands-on. I started looking into construction and found that Sundt is a family-oriented company that takes great care of its employee-owners. The ESOP was a big plus and helped solidify my decision to apply.
What does a Project Engineer do?
It can vary from project to project, but we are primarily responsible for ensuring that the project design and scope are executed in accordance with the overall project plan and specifications. We are also the technical point of contact for up-to-date project information and data and assist the Project Manager as needed.
How do you like working in remote areas, where many of our Industrial projects are located?
I love it! I was raised on a cattle ranch near a village with a population of 70 people so I’m a small-town girl by association and prefer living a remote life. I’m a firm believer that fun can be had anywhere – all you have to do is find it and/or make it!
If you could only have one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I can’t live without my protein and vegetables. I can’t even think of a type of food that I don’t like. I love to try them all!
Where is your favorite place to travel?
So far my favorite out-of-country locations have been Turkey and Greece – I highly recommend visiting there! Other than that, my favorite place to travel is back home to my family’s ranch.
If you weren’t a Project Engineer, what would you be?
It’s a toss-up between two of my favorite things: water and books. So either a marine biologist or librarian.
