Mary Shanks, PE

Associate Engineer

I work on solid waste, mining, and remediation related planning and design projects. My work is mainly in Washington but as far away as Hawai`i and Nevada. I enjoy these types of projects because I like thinking that my projects are improving the environment. In my spare time I am at my family’s lake cabin in the summer and skiing or cheering on various Washington teams in the winter, especially Seahawks, Sounders, and Gonzaga Bulldogs.
