With a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s in business administration, Alice Bravo graduated and hit the ground running. She began her professional career at design firm PBS&J (now called Atkins) in 1991 as a bridge designer and highway engineer.
A few years in, she was assigned to do a study for a multi-modal corridor that involved highway improvements and new transit lines. Bravo stayed on the project from beginning to end. While she had always seen herself designing high-rises and skyscrapers, Bravo credits this project for sparking a newfound passion for major transportation planning.
