Did you know that Civil Engineering Designer, Megan Tacheny, first discovered her passion for drafting while exploring the architect and engineering field in high school? Or that she can’t live without cats or Flamin’ Hot Cheetos? Read along with us, as we dive into Megan’s professional aspirations and personal quirks.

What do you like most about working in the A/E industry?

The A/E industry is very broad. Project variety keeps me actively engaged in my work.

Describe a challenging project you have encountered since becoming an ISGer and how you solved it.

Each project I have worked on has had its challenges. Maintaining good communication, collaborating with team members, and having the ability to adapt is how you navigate those challenges and succeed in project design.

What is the best work-related advice you have been given?

Improve, don’t perfect. Success doesn’t happen overnight so don’t be too hard on yourself.

What do you do for professional development?

Since starting at ISG, I pay more attention to site design when I am out and about. The correlation between my everyday environment and ISG projects, helps me visualize what could be, and broaden my design development process.

What are some skills that have helped you succeed in your field?

I am very detail-orientated. This attention to detail is very important in plan set preparation and has helped me do well in my career.

What is one thing about you that most people would find surprising?

I play tackle football.

What is on your bucket list?

I would like to visit a good number of whiskey distilleries. And eventually retire and move to Canada.
