“We are known as 'yes' people, when other engineers are legendary for saying 'no'. The subtleties of listening to an idea from an architect or contractor, really considering it and coming back with a solution that meets everyone's goals, rather than brushing it aside from the beginning, has been a huge key to our success."
Jami, who joined the Bozeman office in 2005, specializes in renovations and often utilizes her passion for “Engineering C.S.I” to find creative solutions for unique historical buildings. Her ability to maintain the architectual vision while fact checking against real-world physics has helped the firm deliver client satisfaction time and again. Jami’s higher education resume includes the first new 400 bed freshman residence hall at Montana State University (MSU) since 1965, one of the state's largest projects with a $35 million construction cost.
“Born and bred” in Helena, Montana, Jami graduated from MSU in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and enjoys the ultimate work-life balance in the mountains and streams surrounding Bozeman.

- What is your favorite place or building in Montana?
Bridger Bowl Ski Area in Bozeman, MT. It's 15 minutes from my doorstep, our children have grown up skiing there. It's amazing to see a community-owned ski operation thrive and support our families.
