Senior Civil Project Manager
As a youth, Don was drawn to architecture. This led him to study drafting, ultimately leading him to a position doing civil drafting with a Lehigh Valley engineering firm. There, he earned the rank of site supervisor. As his passion for engineering grew, he decided to further his education, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Lafayette College while continuing to work full time.
Now, with 19 years experience, he serves as a project manager at Acela Architects + Engineers. In addition to being a professional engineer in Pennsylvania, he is a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sedimentation Control (CPESC) and in Storm Water Quality (CPSWQ).
Don credits his wife, Katie, and daughters, Kayla and Hazel for supporting and encouraging him throughout his professional journey. His family is his biggest passion outside of work. He volunteers as a coach and serves as a board member for a youth soccer club. He enjoys playing football, softball and golf.
