Melanie Schmeida, PE
What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? It’s all about the client – listening to their needs, working with them to derive the best solutions, considering technical and economic factors and delivering a solution that meets those needs. We need to help our clients solve their most pressing issues, not just provide some pieces of equipment or a response to an RFP.
Which of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? Integrity. If you perform your work and live your life with integrity, all the other values will naturally arise from that.
What are your 3 non-work passions? Food (both cooking and eating!), traveling and playing in the dirt with my flowers and veggies.
What’s something that people might be surprised to know about you? I want to own and operate a small hobby farm when I retire.
