Distinguished Fellow Tim Psomas hosted a group of MURP students at the Psomas Orange County corporate site this June. The future planning professionals engaged with various members of the Psomas team to learn more about their work in areas including environmental planning, resource management, active transportation, geographic information systems, and sustainable engineering practices.
MURP attendee comments demonstrate the level of gratitude and inspiration about the event:
“The site visit Tim hosted was exceptional. He brought in some of the top people from his company. Everyone was engaged for four straight hours. Definitely a great, informative session.” – Jonathan Lightfoot, MURP’17
“I want to thank the Psomas group for organizing the site visit. It was very informational and provided a quick snapshot of how a project gets processed. I found it very helpful.” –Shipra Rajesh, MURP’16
“Thanks for putting together a really great agenda for our visit.” –Joe Cryer, MURP’16
“I thought the visit overall was very informative in thinking about a future career in environmental planning, particularly with the public-private partnership aspects. Thanks again for putting it together!” –Pam Guerra, MURP’17
Many thanks to Tim Psomas, as well as Psomas team members Kathleen Brady, Ann Johnston, Steven Frieson, Laura Wrenn, Paula Heredia, and Melinda Queen for providing this beneficial opportunity for UCI’s MURP students. And bravo to Jonathan Lightfoot, as well, who served as lead MURP student coordinator for this event.
