Biography
I am the President and CEO of Pegasus Global Holdings, Inc., a 100% woman-owned and an international management consulting firm. In 2004 I was the first woman President of the American Society of Civil Engineers in its 152 year history at that time. From 2006-2012, I served on the US National Science Board, appointed by President Bush and Senate confirmed. I currently sit on several for-profit and non-profit boards including the Pacific Science Center Board in Seattle, WA. I serve as both a management consultant in the Energy and Transportation industries and as an international arbitrator. I have traveled to over 100 countries and have been fortunate to work in over 60 on some of the world's largest projects. Projects have included the $30 billion Cross Rail project in London, the Venice Lagoon Flood Gate Project in Italy, The Tsing Ma Bridge in Hong Kong, The City-Link road project in Melbourne, Australia, the world's largest cobalt-nickel mine in Western Australia, the Panama Canal, an off-shore platform and refinery in Mexico, an oil-depot project in Kuwait, a pharmaceutical plant in Singapore, and over 50 nuclear power plants. I am currently Chair of the Independent Review Panel of the Alaskan Way viaduct removal project in Seattle, WA where the world's largest tunnel boring machine is being used to bore a deep tunnel under Seattle. I am a certified Project Management Professional and a Chartered Surveyor and a licensed professional civil engineer in 14 US States, the province of Manitoba, Canada and Australia. I have written a book published by ASCE Press on the 21st Century Engineer and am one of the editors and authors of another ASCE published books, "Managing Gigaprojects From Those That Have Been There Done That." I have published over 150 papers, including 50 peer-reviewed articles and have lectured on over 200 occasions. Watch my TED talk that I gave for TexManhattanBeach !

    Hi, I was just wondering if you have ever felt intimitdated or discriminated against, being a good-looking female in the engineering department? I'm a 23 year old female studying civil engineering and I've been holding off completing college in fear that it will soon be time to get into the male-dominated field. Even in everyday life I am bothered by men and I just seeing how successful you are, do you have any tips to avoid or deal with such events in the work field?
