Valley Woman From Carollo Engineers Earns ‘Young Engineer’ Honor

Jessica Dresang, project manager at Carollo Engineers, has been named the 2012 Outstanding Young Engineer, an honor that acknowledges Arizona engineers who are 35 years of age or younger and have already made outstanding contributions to the profession, society and their communities. The award was presented during the National Engineers Week in Phoenix on February 23.

Dresang earned her B.S. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Arizona and an MBA in Business Administration at Arizona State University. She began her career at Malcolm Pirnie, Inc. in 2002, where she worked for nine years as a Senior Project Engineer/Project Manager before moving to Carollo.

Dresang has been with Carollo Engineers since January 2012, where she is involved with projects including the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Water Reclamation Facility, a greenfield 0.5 MGD facility expandable to 3.0 MGD, which will serve the community and provide reclaimed water to the new Sewailo Golf Course. She also recently completed several water and wastewater-related projects for the City of Goodyear.

“I was extremely surprised to be nominated,” says Dresang. “I am passionate about my work in protecting public health, involving young people in science and engineering education and fighting hunger and homelessness. I feel very honored to be recognized for these things in front of my peers.”

Dresang’s longtime involvement with key industry organizations has also contributed to her recent award. Since 1998, she has belonged to the Society of Women Engineers, holding leadership positions for six terms and, most recently, the title of president of the Phoenix Section. Jessica is also a participating author for three publications.

In addition to Dresang’s professional accolades, she is also highly engaged in civic and humanitarian efforts, including Canstruction, Habitat for Humanity, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Race for the Cure. She has also made important societal contributions while employed as an environmental engineer, all of which helped provide the public with clean drinking water and safe treatment of wastewater.
