Meet MBA Monday – Emily Gould

Got a case of the “Mondays” today? Have no fear, Meet MBA Monday is here! This post is featuring our newest member and Structural Engineer, Emily Gould.

ONE: If you could master one craft, what would it be?

Mastering woodworking would be awesome.  It would be something practical, but also a creative outlet.

TWO: If you could have any profession, other than your own, what would it be?

I would really enjoy being a veterinarian, especially if that meant I got to help care for large or exotic animals in exciting places.

THREE: Who or what inspires you most?

For me, I want to leave things better than I found them, so I feel inspired to help others and do what I can to accomplish that goal.  Whether it’s within my circle of family and friends, or on a more societal scale, I am inspired to work hard to make a positive impact.  In that way too, my family and friends inspire me to do the best I can with what I have available.

FOUR: What would be your perfect off day?

My perfect day off would involve lots of time with family, enjoying a delicious meal or two, and some sort of outdoor activity, like going to a football game, kayaking, or taking on a home improvement project.

FIVE: Where is your dream vacation destination?

Somewhere with big mountains and wide-open spaces! New Zealand, Montana, and Alaska are on my dream destinations list.  I am hoping to make it to Montana in the near future and would love to spend some time on a ranch up there.
