Terray’s interest in engineering started in high school, where her teacher recognized her interest in STEM and recommended her for a Women in Engineering program. She has 13 years of experience and has worked on the design and construction services of a wide variety of projects. In addition to design work, she has had the opportunity throughout her career to mentor others, including being a group leader at Fitzemeyer and Tocci Associates where she ensured her staff was well trained and up to date with code requirements as well as industry standards and trends. She enjoys being a resource to others and always makes certain they receive the support they need to succeed. Terray started at Richardson Engineering in October 2021 as a senior project engineer where she has worked on a wide range of projects including solar photovoltaic installations, power systems studies, medium-voltage distribution systems, fire alarm systems, health care, residential, commercial and industrial wastewater and water treatment facilities. Terray consistently works to improve accuracy and efficiency for the company and clients. In her time at Richardson Engineering, Terray has improved standards and updated templates to streamline and ensure consistency as the company grows. She is always excited to tackle a new problem and thrives on new and challenging designs. Terray has volunteered with several groups, including recently volunteering to co-host a math competition for middle schoolers. Outside of work, Terray enjoys traveling with her husband, most recently visiting Montana, and being active, having completed half marathons, 5Ks and Ragnar (a 200-mile overnight relay race). She hopes to continue being active both as an engineer and runner for many years.
