Katrina Lawrence has a combined 8 years of public service working both for the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). She was a Senior Project Implementation Engineer for DVPRC and an Urban Planning Engineer for GDOT. In these positions, she worked directly with many municipalities to manage and deliver local projects that enhanced the community.

Katrina has been highly involved with ASCE Philadelphia, primarily the YMF, since moving to Philly in 2014. Over the past 4 years Katrina has been instrumental in the YMF’s K-12 outreach and member recognition efforts. She now serves as the YMF’s Treasurer.

Katrina received her B.S. in Civil Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010 and she lives in Center City. Katrina has been fortunate to work with for great government agencies and is excited to continue that work in her new position as a Transportation Specialist with McCormick Taylor.

What has meant the most to you over the past few years being an active YMF board member and now exec board member?

I have enjoyed seeing the enthusiasm and drive of the YMF’s board members over the years. Regardless of everyone’s personal lives and professional responsibilities they are always dedicated to make the YMF better. I’m proud to be part of a society that has so many innovative ideas and positively impacts the region.
