  Greta Ehrhorn

Greta Ehrhorn

Meet Greta. She’s an assistant engineer on our Traffic/Technology team in our Lincoln office. Her Olsson story began three years ago, when she was a summer intern after her sophomore year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL).

In her sophomore year, Greta was open to the idea of having an internship but didn’t find any firms that really stood out to her. That is, until she attended an engineering-specific career fair at UNL and was introduced to Olsson.

“I met John Coburn and Mandy Wehner and I knew right off the bat that I wanted to intern for Olsson,” she said. “It just clicked for me.”

Greta was impressed that both John and Mandy took the time to talk with her and get to know her, something she noticed was rare. From there, she went home and filled out an application and the rest is history.

Starting out in our Omaha office on the Rail team, Greta was given the chance put her classroom learning to use. Once the school year started, she transferred to the Traffic Technology team in the Lincoln office, where she’s been ever since, including accepting a full-time position after graduating in May

“When I was in school, I knew I wanted to work in transportation. So, when I joined the Traffic/Technology team, I knew I’d found the perfect fit,” she said. “I love the people and working alongside them.”

That’s one of the reasons Greta loves Olsson so much: the people.

“I haven’t met anyone I haven’t liked to work with,” she said. “Everyone has been so willing to help me learn, and that’s been very enjoyable.”

At the end of the day, Greta sees a long future ahead of her at Olsson.

“I love that I’m not stuck in any one position. I have the opportunity to learn more, get involved with other young professionals in the firm, and gradually move up as the time comes,” she said. “My path is wide open.”

Meet Sandra. She’s been an associate technician on the Traffic/Technology team in our Overland Park, Kansas, office for three years. This is her Olsson story.

Sandra always knew she wanted to do something different. That’s where the idea of working in telecom came in, as she had learned about it while attending college.

“I always liked numbers and was good at math, so I wanted to have a career where I could use numbers every day,” she said.

Sandra and her husband used to live in Omaha, which is where she initially learned about Olsson. Eventually they relocated to Kansas City, and she decided it was the perfect time to explore Olsson more.

“I had heard great things about Olsson and thought it could be a place where I could work a long time,” she said.  “Since day one it’s been a great place to work, and I love the work I do.”

In particular, Sandra focuses on telecom work for the Traffic/Technology team, which gives her the ability to travel to different job sites across the city and also allows her autonomy.

“I love that my supervisor trusts me to do my job and do it well,” she said. “My team is generally laid back, and that provides a great environment to work in.”

As for professional development, Sandra is thankful for co-workers who are willing to teach her new skills. And, she can return the favor to them, too.

“We all take the time to teach each other something new we may have learned,” she said. “It’s just a great opportunity, and I feel very supported in continuing my professional development as well.”

Meet Meg Plank. She’s an assistant mechanical engineer in our Fort Worth, Texas, office. Her start with Olsson coincided with the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and working from home, which made for a memorable yet welcoming start.

“I was introduced to most of the team over a Microsoft Teams call but felt fortunate to have peers who were welcoming and willing to show me the ropes,” she said. “Learning a new job remotely was different and certainly had challenges, but we learned to be flexible.”

As an assistant mechanical engineer, Meg works closely with associate engineers to help with calculations, equipment selections, and overall design for heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing disciplines. She’s also had the opportunity to participate in site audits that allow her to spend time on site to verify design drawings and field installation for clients.

“My favorite part of being an assistant engineer at Olsson is collaborating with my peers to create solutions and build designs that meet the needs of our clients and better the community. Not to mention, everyday looks a little bit different,” she said.

For Meg, another perk of working at Olsson is that she gets to work in a city with incredible culture. One might say even the culture is bigger in Texas.

“Everything from country music and rodeos to football and tailgates make Texas a great place to live,” she said. “Personally, I enjoy spending time outdoors biking, hiking, and camping, and in Texas there is no shortage of things to do whether it be indoor or outdoor.”

In addition, Texas has an exceptionally vibrant arts and entertainment scene, with festivals, concerts, and museums throughout the state. And you can’t forget about the food, which according to Meg, is second to none.

“I have lived and worked in Fort Worth for two years now, and it’s the best place to be,” she said.

But it’s not just the great culture of the city itself that Meg loves about Fort Worth, it’s the fact that she knows she’s working for a company that cares.

“Olsson values and cares for its employees. Employees have the resources and support they need to learn, grow, and serve clients successfully. This alone helps us serve our clients at a high level,” she said. “The culture at Olsson emphasizes teamwork and supporting one another. As Olsson employees, we work together and strive to create successful outcomes for our clients to improve communities around us.”
