Board Member of the Month - Kyle Higgins , P . E .
Hello fellow ASCE members ! My name is Kyle Higgins , and I am pleased to introduce myself as the newly elected ASCE NH Section Treasurer . I am thrilled to be on the board of directors for this great group of professionals . Promoting engineering education and the engineering profession as a whole is a career aspiration of mine . I figured there is no better way to do so , than by getting involved with this organization . I would encourage anyone with similar goals to reach out to the board or join an ASCE-NH event . Let ’ s help to ensure a prosperous future for the engineering and construction industry in NH !
I was born and raised in NH and am a graduate of UNH . I work in the highway design group for Greenman- Pedersen , Inc in Bedford . I have been with GPI for about a year and a half . Prior to that I worked at WSP in Eliot , Maine . Working on roadway projects with local clients is incredibly fulfilling work . I get to help transform communities and make travel in the region safer and more efficient . As with all engineering work , there are no shortages of complex problems to solve … and every now and then I actually come up with a decent solution to a few of them !
A few facts about me :
� I love live music and have been to over 50 shows / concerts . Everything from Jimmy Buffett to Kendrick Lamar . Recently I have been into Bluegrass and Folk music , especially old Jerry Garcia tunes .
� My partner , Liza , and I have a goal to visit all of the US national parks . Here is a photo that we took at Rocky Mountain National Park in June of this year . We have also hiked 36 of the NH 48 4000-ft peaks … just 12 more to go !
� I have a coonhound pup named Dash , who loves to bark , chase chipmunks and sniff everything in sight .
� My favorite television show is Jeopardy ! I love trivia and random facts . I always say that I know a little about a lot . So far , bar trivia is about the only productive use for my talents .
Thanks for letting me share a little bit about myself . Looking forward to serving as your treasurer this year . Please feel free to reach out if you have anything that I can assist with ( email : khiggins @ gpinet . com ). I hope to see you all at our upcoming events !
