Growing up in Beardstown, Illinois, Tim Verheyen, PE learned a lot about working hard from his parents, who owned a small business. The youngest of three boys, he also became a little competitive. Now, Tim brings these traits to his role as Civil Engineering Principal in ISG’s Waterloo, IA office where he ensures that ISG stands above the competition to best serve clients.
Women's History Month is here, and in honor of the number of women in the engineering field rising we have compiled some inspirational words from ISG’s women engineers across multiple offices and disciplines. Here’s what they had to say:
Whitney Stramer likes to create, and her creations know no bounds. In her role as a Graduate Engineer at ISG, she creates both designs and positive relationships with co-employee owners and clients. Whitney builds these relationships outside the office with her volunteering, whether working for non-profits or mentoring high school students. As if that wasn’t enough, the self-admitted “avid plant lady” is also a huge fan of DIYs and crafting. Read on to learn more about Whitney!
A veteran of the United States Navy, Civil Engineer Evan Del Val now charts his own course as an ISG Employee Owner, and boards a smaller ship (his kayak) to navigate the rivers of Greater Des Moines when the temperature allows. In sub-zero temperatures, you can find him spending time with his family, or braving the outdoors on cross-country skis or a snowboard.
In honor of #NationalEngineersWeek, we are sparking ingenuity with a compilation of Engineering blogs. From Employee Spotlights to articles by our own Engineers, this list is sure to elicit thinking outside of the box (much like these engineers do everyday)!

Read on to learn more about Kirk’s work at ISG and his involvement with the Annual Hooked on Hardwater event happening next Saturday, February 23!
