Sarah Durphy Embraces the Chill
January 31, 2019
Sarah and her family relocated from Oakland to the Twin Cities where they are enjoying seasons for the first time, including the cold winds of 2019’s record setting polar vortex.
Sarah recently obtained her Minnesota engineering license and is active in the Minnesota Structural Engineer’s Association (MNSEA). She is currently serving as Vice-Chair of the MNSEA Structural Engineering Emergency Response (SEER) committee where she is developing a program that will train and coordinate structural engineers in Minnesota to assess damaged structures following a major wind, fire, flood, or snow event. Sarah is also trained and certified as a CalOES Disaster Service Worker and SAP Coordinator.
Despite the miles, Sarah is actively engaged in the daily life of Estructure, managing projects, collaborating with clients, participating in Estructure’s strategic planning, and providing mentorship to staff via phone, skype, and chat. Sarah is a frequent presence in the office and at job sites, traveling to California whenever she can for work, pleasure, and occasionally, for the sunshine.
