In her administrative role, Karla assists engineers in the Springfield office with project-related work such as contracts, certificates of insurance and reports. Karla says she enjoys the people she works with and her job's challenges, and finds putting her organizational talents to work very satisfying.

As the health and safety program assistant, Karla assists GeoEngineers' health and safety manager with the company-wide health and safety program. She also monitors health and safety compliance for the Springfield office and provides compliance information for the outside audit program that many of our clients use for rating GeoEngineers as an acceptable contractor.

There's no such thing as spare time in Karla's life. She has been a "soccer mom” without the mini-van since her soccer-playing, college-age daughter was in kindergarten. Karla and her husband own and operate Breadsmith, an artisan bread store. He runs the store, but Karla often helps out when she's not at GeoEngineers. When she does find time for fun, Karla loves being outdoors for hiking or leisure bike-riding, swimming and water sports. She is a co-founder of a Springfield soccer club and remains active in the organization as a member of its executive team.
