Meet SEAOSC Incoming Board Member: Jillian van Enckevort, S.E.

Jillian's structural engineering journey began when she was a young girl accompanying her father, a general contractor, to his work sites. Her exposure to the construction industry at an early age ignited a spark within her, and she found herself drawn to the structural aspect of building design. She pursued this interest in college, initially starting as an architecture major. However, by her second year at Cal Poly SLO, she was more interested in the “bones” of a building versus the finishes and was drawn to buildings with exposed structures. She ended up switching majors in her third year, and she hasn’t looked back since, remaining active in structural engineering and in the San Luis Obispo community.

It was during her time working with Fred Schott that Jillian first joined SEAOSC. Over the years, Jillian attended the Tri-Counties events and technical sessions in Los Angeles, appreciating not only the technical aspects of the events but also the opportunity to meet and network with other engineers. Jillian's involvement with SEAOSC was temporarily put on hold when she became a mother, but she has since returned to the organization with renewed enthusiasm. "Our culture at FTF Engineering really pushes for staff to be involved in the structural engineering community, and I am excited about stepping up to the next level of involvement in the coming years as part of the Board of Directors as well as representing the tri-county community," she elaborated.

Jillian will be bringing valuable insights, ideas, and direction to the SEAOSC board, helping guide our organization into the future. We are so excited to welcome Jillian on board!
