Emily Bousaada — EIT, ENV SP
Emily graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2016, majoring in civil engineering and minoring in landscape architecture. Her dual background motivates her to build sustainable and equitable communities by implementing resilient social, economic, and environmental site development strategies. Her experience includes aspects of site development, including grading and drainage, site layout, hydrological analysis, hydraulic analysis, environmental permitting, feasibility studies, master planning, planting plans, and graphics. She has a strong desire to work on projects about green infrastructure, climate change, resilience, multimodal transportation, water / stormwater, parks, and recreation. In conjunction with her Envision certification, she plans on being professionally licensed as both a Professional Engineer (PE) and a registered landscape architect.
She is currently serving as a New England Committee Member for the Future City Inc. design competition where middle school students envision, study, plan, and build cities of the future that showcase their resolution to citywide sustainability issues. She previously mentored students in their competition at a school in Enfield, CT. In early 2020, they won local awards in Most Interesting Structural Element, Most Progressive Transportation System, and Most Developed Infrastructure. She also designs and creates all social media graphics for her Local PWC (Professional Women in Construction) Chapter.
