She served in hurricane recovery efforts immediately following Katrina and then Rita, including unwatering and levee and floodwall reconstruction in St. Bernard Parish, and after Gustav on the Damage Assessment Team to inspect flood protection on the West Bank and Vicinity project. While in Construction Division, she worked as the field engineer on multiple projects including floodwalls, levees, and pump stations on the east and west banks of New Orleans and vicinity.
