Jacqui Gossard is a Design Engineer in EEA’s Chicago office where she focuses on site development through all phases of design and construction. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in biological engineering and a master’s degree in environmental engineering, both from Cornell University, she developed a passion for hydrology, hydraulics, and runoff treatment. During her coursework, Jacqui was surprised to learn that stormwater management and detention could be so invisible and yet play such a crucial role in site development. As a result, she was eager to pursue a career as a civil engineer where she has the opportunity to improve the functions of community infrastructure and reduce the impact of civil design.
With a strong attention to detail, Jacqui is a problem solver who likes to analyze regulations and work through issues early in the design process. She is a registered Engineer in Training (EIT) and works hard to meet client needs and exceed their expectations.
When not designing civil engineering solutions, Jacqui spends her time knitting and making pickles, in addition to backpacking and bikepacking.
