Bridget Osborn named to the 2016 class of New Faces of Engineering
HR Green’s Bridget Osborn, PE, has been named to the 2016 class of New Faces of Engineering by DiscoverE. Since 2003, DiscoverE has presented this award to honor the work of up-and-coming engineers who are making their mark on their industry. This award is recognized as a top honor for young engineers by their peers in the engineering community.
“These talented individuals are also recognized for having dedicated themselves to using their skills and education to help engender a better world,” officials from DiscoverE said in a press release.
Bridget is a Water Resources Engineer in HR Green’s St. Paul, MN office. She was nominated for this award by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). She helps her clients manage surface water and creates innovative, practical solutions for managing storm water and other runoff. Her design of iron enhanced sand filter systems within a redeveloped brownfields site earned her a project of the year award from the Capitol Region Watershed District. Bridget is also a strong advocate for education about alternative uses for storm water and has presented at multiple conferences.
In December 2015 Bridget Osborn was also named an ACEC Young Professional of the Year, one of only five nationwide entrants that were chosen for the award. She was the 2014 recipient of the Minnesota Council’s Emerging Leader Award for her commitment to encouraging the involvement of new and aspiring engineers, works with Habitat for Humanity and is a judge for the Minnesota Future City middle school engineering.
“This is a great honor and achievement for Bridget and it confirms what we have known all along, that Bridget is a very bright, young and talented individual,” said Ajay Jain, Water Resources Practice Leader at HR Green. “Bridget is always willing to learn new things with infectious enthusiasm and brings lots of energy and dedication to finding practical, cost-effective solutions for her clients while improving the environment, and quality of life in the communities she serves. This award and her involvement with ACEC and other organizations within the MN market set a great example for everyone here at HR Green, especially for our young professionals.”
