By on March 27, 2018

I recently started taking vitamins in order to live up to the “Wise and Graceful by 40” expectation that I have set up for myself.

Engineering: Professional Wardrobe

By on February 14, 2018

I am writing this post after a long talk with my office administration manager. In our industry, it’s not uncommon to hear “dress professional”, but it’s also very common to hear “It’s the brain not the clothes” or “I don’t need to dress well, I’m an engineer.” This whole mindset has become more popular especially with the new tech era. Everyone in Silicon Valley comes into work wearing jeans and a t-shirt so it’s catching on to everyone else in the tech field. I mean even Elon Musk’s wardrobe is jeans and t-shirts. BUT, it should be understood that the guys in Silicon Valley dress the way they do because they do not deal with clients face to face. They work from their desk 60 hours a week and deal with clients through email. Of course, these ones most often of the lower hierarchy, they don’t have to deal with important clients.

She does very well with balancing here life, she is very hard working and is a huge competitor in our Civil Engineering industry. Therefore, I have asked her to write a little something about her world to share with you guys and thank goodness she agreed!
