In its 29th year, Maryland’s Top 100 Women was founded to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership, and mentoring.

“Lori is an example for how to remain technically strong in the engineering industry while also being a strong mentor who supports the younger generation daily. She constantly looks for ways to participate, engage, improve and problem solve towards a positive outcome and is very well respected by her clients and peers,” said Partner Melinda B. Peters, PE, CCM.

Lori has spent her entire career at RK&K and has been proven to be an integral part of RK&K’s success over her 32 years at the firm.

In this time, she has led major projects for the Maryland Transportation Authority, Maryland State Highway Administration, City of Baltimore, City of Richmond, Delaware River & Bay Authority, and District Department of Transportation.

In addition to her project work, Lori is a member of the Women in Transportation Seminar (WTS) where she participated in the Mentor Match program, a founding member of the RK&K’s Women’s Leadership Forum, founding member and President of the firm’s Toastmasters chapter, co-chair of the RK&K Culture Assessment and Monitoring Committee. She also coordinates monthly technical sessions for her department to share their knowledge and practice their presentation skills and is serving on a group that engages our onsite staff embedded in our client offices to make them feel connected and part of the firm.

Lori participates in STEM events and frequently presents about the engineering profession and what it is like to be a bridge engineer to elementary, middle, and high school students during career days and through the WTS subcommittee TransporationYou’s partnership with the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, as well as many other activities.

“She is always willing to step up and help make our industry and firm better,” said Melinda.

“I am so honored to be recognized for this award, but even more honored to be able to work in a profession that reaches so many in positive ways, from the children I build gumdrop toothpick bridges with to the public traveling across that newly rehabilitated bridge I helped design all while working at an amazing firm with many wonderful people,” said Lori.
