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 opened the Bozeman office in 2005 and specializes in historic renovations and higher education projects, often leveraging her passion for “Engineering C.S.I” to find creative solutions for unique existing buildings. Her ability to support the architectural vision while fact checking against real-world physics has helped the firm deliver client satisfaction time and again. She loves collaborating with the entire design and build team to problem solve on the job site!

“Born and bred” in Helena, Montana, Jami graduated from Montana State University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and enjoys the ultimate work-life balance in the mountains surrounding Bozeman. In 2017, she took on the corporate role of Principal in Charge of Business Development for DCI, building on her engineering background to train our people to provide excellent client care and service, while maintaining valuable client connections across our nation-wide offices.

Jami is currently service as the Secretary on the Board of Directors for the National Council of Structural Engineers Association (NCSEA).

What is your favorite thing about your work environment?

Our Montana offices have highly intelligent, creative and well-rounded engineers with hobbies and passions outside the workplace. Most of my favorite people are the ones I work with every day.

If you weren't an engineer, what would you be?
An event planner. I love helping people, making connections and building social events for my employees and our clients.

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.
